Jobs Victoria Work and Learning Centres help jobseekers, especially those living in public housing, to find local training, work experience and jobs.

There are five Work and Learning Centres around Victoria, located in Fitzroy, North Geelong, Moe, Ballarat and Shepparton. Jobs Victoria works in partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence and other local community agencies to run these centres.

What do the Jobs Victoria Work and Learning Centres do?

Work and Learning Centres provide personalised support and services for each jobseeker.

Jobseekers have access to:

  • career guidance and job service training
  • vocational training with local providers
  • foundation skill courses to improve work readiness
