Springvale Learning and Activities Centre are pleased to be partnering with the Victorian Government to offer the Jobs Victoria, Jobs Advocate program.
This program is supported by the Victorian Government’s $619.4 million Jobs Victoria initiative. Jobs
Victoria helps people looking for work to access the support, information and advice they need to find a
job that’s right for them.
About the Program:
Jobs Victoria Advocates aim to assist Victorians to prepare for and secure employment through the
provision of valuable information, referral and connection to available resources and supports.
Job Advocates offer initial one-on-one support to individuals who need help finding work or who are struggling with the impact of unemployment or underemployment to refer them to the information, agency, guidance and additional support they need. They will support jobseekers in their communities.
Our Job Advocates will help jobseekers navigate the wide range of employment and education services that are available in their local area, and ensure each person is referred to the right service that caters to their needs.
Job Advocates will link jobseekers with the following:
- Career counselling
- Education and Training
- Mentoring Programs
- Relevant social and welfare supports as needed
Advocates will connect with people in libraries, community centres, public housing foyers, shopping centres, other community services and may also go to people’s homes in some locations to ensure everyone is aware of support available.
Springvale Learning and Activities Centre Services provides the Jobs Victoria Advocates program to people living in and/or engaging in services in the South Eastern region. (Greater Dandenong, City of Casey, City of Kingston and Cardinia Shire)
