WorkVentures has been providing jobseekers with pathways to employment in the technology and logistics sectors for over 30 years. Our KickStart program is all about training unemployed youth in deeper skills and experience through immersion in our businesses.
Our priority is getting youth into sustainable work.
The Kickstart Academy includes an initial 3-5 week “Skills boot camp” – an employment readiness and evaluation program that allows participants to understand the longer-term career paths available and the qualities needed to achieve them.
After completing boot camp, participants are eligible for a further 8 weeks of practical skills development through on-the-job work experience and specialised training in one of four career pathways:
* IT call centre/technical support
* ICT hardware repair and refurbishment
* Logistics coordinator
