Career Transition Assistance (CTA)

For people over 45 who want to improve soft skills, technical skills and digital literacy to get back into employment 

Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program

If you’re over 45 and looking to improve your literacy, numeracy and computer skills, our Career Transition Assistance program can give you the FREE training and support you need to return to work. 

As workplaces are continually adapting to new technology it is more important than ever to be digitally literate. But this can be difficult, particularly as we get older, after time out of employment or when entering a new job.

This eight-week program will help build on your existing experience while providing additional training and digital skills to support your return to work. 

Don’t get left behind in the modern workplace!
