Career Pathways Pilot Program (CPP)

Plan your career in Australia with CPP

The Australian Government has introduced a program to help people who have come to Australia on a humanitarian visa to plan their work life in their new country. Known as the Careers Pathways Pilot (CPP), Navitas English Canberra offers this program throughout the ACT.

When you first arrive in Australia, it might be difficult to find a job that matches your skills and experience. Your professional or trade skills or other qualifications might not be recognised in Australia. The CPP program can help with these issues, and you can attend at times that suit you.

The program is free* for eligible people on a humanitarian visa and there’s no time limit on how long we can support you. Also, you do not need to be unemployed to join.
