Gateway To Training (GTT) recently hosted a site visit from the Department of Employment in relation to the successful rollout of the Transition to Work (TtW) program.
TtW assists young people to gain work-readiness skills. The TtW Queensland Account Manager Mel Cox and Contract Manager Kate Simpson travelled out to see firsthand how the program is working. Mel grew up in Goondiwindi and attended Goondiwindi State High School where she was Dux in her final year, so it was a nostalgic journey back to her childhood haunts. GTT delivers TtW across the communities of Goondiwindi, Warwick, Stanthorpe, St George and Roma. The TtW program focuses on building skills, confidence and working with local employers to support their clients as they transition into employment. If you are aged between 15-21 years and are looking for work, underemployed or planning further study or you are an employer who has positions available for entry level staff, please contact the DISCO or GTT TtW provider in your community.
