Growing stronger together

November, 2016
Getting Ahead builds skills for employment success


Nine Northern Futures participants now have a much better understanding of their strengths and skills thanks to the innovative course delivered at Northern Futures called Getting Ahead.

Also referred to as Certificate 1 in Employment Pathways, Getting Ahead helps job seekers create personal action plans to improve their opportunities and identify pathways towards further training and employment.

Speaking at the Getting Ahead graduation ceremony in November 2016, 23 year old Sophie told the audience that when she started the course she wasn’t really sure where she was heading but, 15 weeks later, she had a much clearer picture of her future and what she needed to do to achieve her aims.

Getting Ahead is delivered by The Gordon at Northern Futures and involves informal group sessions facilitated by a skilled trainer who acts as both coach and supporter each step of the way. Site visits to Northern Futures Industry Partners during the course included Barwon Health, The Gordon, Viva Energy and Matchworks.

Congratulations to all our participants. We know you are well-prepared to continue on your training and employment pathway.
