“I just finished my training, and after the three weeks, I was asked ‘Do you want to do this job?’, I said yeah, I will do, it’s easy job, and good money also. Everything is easy!”

Introducing the Aged Care, Childcare, and Transport (ACT) Program — an innovative initiative designed to offer training and employment opportunities in metropolitan Melbourne.

Unlocking doors to comprehensive training and employment pathways, the ACT Program empowers women in metropolitan Melbourne to pursue fulfilling careers within the aged care, childcare, and transport sectors


Participants are invited to join The Placement Circle program, an innovative initiative designed to foster connections among women in the program.

This platform offers support in crucial areas such as interview skills and resume writing, enhancing participants’ employability and confidence in pursuing their chosen career paths.

By engaging in this program, women gain access to safe, well-remunerated, and supportive working environments, which often lead to opportunities for traineeships, direct employment, and long-term career advancement.

Ultimately, participants not only shape their own futures but also contribute to the growth and prosperity of their communities, making a significant and positive impact alongside their peers.

Through this initiative, participants have the chance to graduate with nationally recognised qualifications, specifically the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education & Care (CHC30121) or Certificate III in Individual Support (CHC33021).

These qualifications open doors to careers in industries experiencing high demand for skilled professionals.

Moreover, participants are connected with employers in these sectors, both in skilled and unskilled capacities, providing pathways to secure and fulfilling employment.
