2021 is the year for upskilling and those not moving forward are at risk of getting left behind, according to one of IMPACT Community Services’ employment specialists.

IMPACT’s jobactive recruitment advisor David Maxey-Fisher said now was the right time to act for those looking to upskill.

IMPACT is currently accepting enrolments for a suite of courses set to start in coming days. 

In-demand opportunities

All IMPACT courses are aligned to local industry demand where there is an identified need for skilled new workers.

IMPACT is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO code: 0115) and offers a range of courses, including Certificate III training in Individual Support (Home and Community, Ageing and Disability) as well as Hospitality.

IMPACT’s team of specialist trainers have a wealth of industry experience and strong connections with employers across the region.

Going the extra mile

Mr Maxey-Fisher said IMPACT went the extra mile to work with students to prepare them for the workforce.

"IMPACT offers work placement into real jobs and the support to make you attractive to an employer,” Mr Maxey-Fisher said.

“We put you in the shop window for employers looking for good staff.

“Our training can connect you with motivated people who can energise you into getting the right position, and the mentoring and guidance that only professional Certificate III training can provide.”

Students may also be eligible for government funding support.
