HITsa Pre-employment Training
HITsa partners with ACA
In January, HITsa welcomed 12 students from all over the metro area to undertake Pre-Employment Training for potential employment with ACA [Appreticeship Careers Australia].
HITsa has a continuing partnership with ACA to deliver our skill set “Entry into Care Roles” at Clarence Gardens.
The students will gain 3 accredited units from the “Entry into Care Roles” Skills Set and obtain their First Aid and a couple of non-accredited units.
This Skill Set takes 2 short weeks, and for those students who successfully completed the course, ACA will endeavour to secure them employment.
Rory’s Group Australia Skills 2 Work Program
HITsa has established a pre-employment pathway with Rory’s Group Australia and Atwork Australia to create a smooth transition for participants interested in working in the hospitality industry into employment through two weeks of relevant entry level training.
In January, 32 participants were given the opportunity to train with HITsa across both sites as part of this pre-employment program. 28 of these completed the training. There was a high percentage of employment outcomes for the students who completed their training.
