Help for mature-age people to become more competitive in the job market

Need support gaining employment, skills or training? ETC’s Career Transition Assistance (CTA) Program can help!

This new initiative will help older workers (aged 45 years and over) to build their skills and confidence to be competitive in today’s job market.

With a strong focus on digital technology, CTA aims to help boost IT skills and expand job prospects.

“Using smartphones, tablets, Apps, social media and computers is the way of the future, so we’re here to help people ‘get with the times’,” said ETC CEO Jenny Barnett.

“Our Program will include a digital self-awareness module to help break down any barriers older workers are experiencing with modern technology.”

ETC’s CTA Program Manager Gerard Klinkers said the Program would also include personalised career assistance and experiential group activities.

“Above all, we really want to boost mature-age people’s confidence and skills. We will help them to prepare a Resume, write job applications and cover letters based on their individual skills and experiences,” Mr Klinkers said.

“ETC understands that adults come with real-life experiences. Therefore, our focus is to empower them to grow and develop through our interactive and supportive program.”
