Career Transition Assistance

Practical Assistance & Training

The Workforce Australia - Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program is designed for mature age Participants, aged 45 years and over. It provides practical assistance and training to increase employability and competitiveness in local job markets.

Designer Life has been selected to deliver the CTA program as a Workforce Australia provider, offering an intensive course scheduled for a minimum of 75 hours and runs for up to eight weeks. Our CTA program will provide targeted support for mature age Participants to increase their confidence in the skills and experience they already have, as well as increase their motivation and resilience to continue looking for work.

Creating Opportunities

The CTA program aids Participants in enhancing their awareness of local job opportunities, markets, and encourages direct interaction with local Employers. This provides our Participants with the chance to look into various occupations and industries by participating in visits to Employers. Designer Life assists Participants in customising their job applications for specific industries and Employers. The program also focuses on enhancing Participants' digital skills, providing essential digital proficiency required for applying to and working in diverse workplaces.

CTA requires Participants to prepare a tailored Career Pathway Plan, which outlines the steps they will need to take to pursue employment opportunities based on their transferable skills, the local labour market, and their career goals. In addition, they will explore their career options, including identifying further training or education to achieve their Career Pathway Plan objectives.

The program is conducted within a supportive group environment, fostering an atmosphere that enables Participants to build networks with one another. In addition, CTA Participants will be linked directly to employment opportunities through arranged placements with local employers.
