Not-for-profit employment, training, education and apprenticeship service provider VERTO has today been selected to deliver Workforce Australia services in more than 50 NSW locations for the next six years.
Workforce Australia is the Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s new employment model that will replace the jobactive program, with Workforce Australia services to deliver simple and efficient solutions to assist local job seekers and employers.
VERTO will provide Workforce Australia services in the Central West, Hunter, North Coast, and Far West Orana regions.
“Our employees work hard to provide life-changing employment and training outcomes for our clients.
“From our humble beginnings as a local community college here in Bathurst with a handful of employees, it’s fantastic to see VERTO grow to become a provider of key apprenticeship, employment and training services in more than 50 locations across NSW, ACT and Victoria.
“We are very proud that the Department of Education, Skills and Employment has recognised the significant work we do in our local communities and entrusted us to deliver this important new program.”
Workforce Australia will enable local job-ready job seekers to self-manage through new, interactive digital services, while those with greater needs will be supported by experienced VERTO consultants delivering Workforce Australia services.
