CCCA has been instrumental in providing career development support for our community’s most vulnerable jobseekers in a wide range of projects. Through our Ready2Work program, we provide the Employment Readiness ScaleTM (ERS) online assessment so vulnerable jobseekers are able to develop the capacity, skills and confidence to find work or pursue skills and training pathways to employment.

 We provide improvement services to recruitment organisations, mental health NFP’s, community service providers, refugee organisations and skills and job centres so they can deliver best-practice support to jobseekers. Our improvement services include establishment and training in the ERS, audit and benchmarking services and staff professional standard reviews.

 For community service providers seeking to establish job or career services, our consulting services can help you design and establish the right service with the right resources and tools.
