The Dandenong and Doveton Project is improving the employment prospects of jobseekers who experience multiple and complex barriers to employment.
The following Community Revitalisation initiatives are underway in Dandenong and Doveton.
Employment readiness and careers counselling program
CEAV Careers Counselling Australia is delivering an employment readiness and careers counselling program. This program is piloting an intensive, person-centred approach using a vocational assessment tool, the Employment Readiness Scale and targeted career development strategies as well as professional careers guidance.
The brokerage fund supports job seekers by covering the costs of any necessary preparations for job readiness, such as training, work clothes or a driving licence.
People seeking asylum activity
This initiative will support approximately 30 people seeking asylum to access practical work experience in the local manufacturing industry.
