Issues such as low literacy, numeracy or language skills can impact on a job seeker’s confidence to participate and their ability to succeed in the workplace or a classroom environment. For many job seekers, building self‑confidence will boost their capacity to take up jobs or further training.
There are many potential benefits for job seekers participating in training through the SEE program, including:
- overall improvement in language, literacy and numeracy skills
- improved confidence and ability to engage in the community
- increased confidence to undertake further study
- obtaining new or improved vocational skills for further study or employment
- developing pathways to employment
- ability to gain more stable, appropriate, long-term employment
The article below highlights a specific example of how one job seeker benefited from participating in the SEE program.
