West North West Transitions

09 August 2018

We are pleased to announce that  West North West Transitions has been appointed as a Transitions Services Panel Member (2018-2020). West North West Transitions is a consortium led by Westgate Community Initiatives Group Inc. (WCIG) in partnership with Comm Unity Plus Services Ltd. It will deliver skills and training support to retrenched workers under the Australian Government’s Stronger Transitions package.

Stronger Transitions is a targeted package of intensive assistance supporting individuals in industries and regions especially impacted by structural change. It will help the workforce transition to new jobs and prepare for jobs of the future.

As part of this program a range of Core Transition Services and Additional Transition Services will be offered to retrenched workers in the North and West Regions.

We will work with employers and their workforce starting at the workforce before retrenchment, and with the workers for up to nine months aftewards. We will also work with jobactives to provide skills assessments for workers who have already been retrenced.

Workplaces often have to make changes to their operations due to business viability, changes in the market situation or strategic business decisions. As a result of such changes, employers may have to take decisions which may result in retrenchment of part of the workforce. This program will support employers and employees through the retrenchment process through access to a suite of services.

Services Include:

  • CTS1 Core Transition Services
  • CTS2 Preparing, Planning and Applying for Jobs

The Additional Transitions Services include:

  • ATS1 Resilience Training
  • ATS2 Language Literacy and Numeracy Support
  • ATS3 Digital Literacy Training
  • ATS4 Financial Management Information
  • ATS5 Exploring Self –Employment Options
  • ATS6 Health and Wellbeing Awareness Support
  • ATS7 Industry Awareness Experiences
