Each participant receives a ‘passport’, and earns stamps in it for successfully completing parts of the programme. Each stamp tells a potential employer that the passport holder is skilled in a particular area.

Each participant will take part in the following core components of the programme:

  • Education – attend classes to provide them with basic skills. Classes will use a face-to-face delivery method, in which the tutor shares a physical space with programme participants
  • Employability workshop – attend workshops about subjects such as: resume writing; dressing for success; interview skills; and pride in performance
  • Work experience – go on job placements in companies and organisations whose business is related to participants’ chosen career; gain work experience and develop decision-making skills
  • Extra-Curricular activities – such as: attending service clubs; playing sports; obtaining a driving license; obtaining a diving certificate

Other features of the programme include:

  • Participants can customize their programme to suit their areas of interest
  • Activities are hands-on and practical
  • Emphasis on adult literacy
  • Integration of general life skills and career specific vocational education
  • A career pathways approach
  • Adult based learning methods (such as group and practical exercises)
  • Real world perspective
  • Guest speakers from local businesses and industry
  • Fun team building activities
