Skills First Reconnect

Skills First Reconnect supports people between the ages of 20-64 who have been unemployed long-term and have not completed high school and young people aged 17-19 who are early school leavers. Participants are allocated a Skills First Reconnect coach who will assist them to complete an educational course to improve their employment opportunities.

The program focuses on the following groups:

  • Parents returning to work
  • Indigenous Australians
  • People with a disability
  • People with low literacy and numeracy
  • People who are physically isolated
  • Young mothers
  • Highly marginalised groups such as offenders, drug and alcohol dependents or homeless

Skills First Reconnect is offered by Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services in partnership with Yarraville Community Centre and CommUnity+ across the local government areas of Melton, Brimbank, Maribyrnong and Hume.

Funding for Skills First Reconnect is provided by the Victorian Government through the Department of Education and Training.
