Their first project is focused on the Manufacturing industry, it will be delivered in Queensland and will target the Brisbane South East, Gold Coast, Somerset and Wivenhoe Employment Regions.

To achieve their project outcomes, Workforce Specialist Prestige Staffing Solutions will deliver a pre-employment program that will assist up to 100 participants over 10 tranches to prepare themselves for a career in the Manufacturing industry, more specifically entry level roles in assembly, dispatch and welding.

The project is available to all Workforce Australia, Workforce Australia Online and Transition to Work participants, including all ages and cohorts.

This project has allocated three of the ten tranches to solely focus on the Indigenous Australians cohort by bringing in additional mentors, elders and other supports to assist participants with completion.
