“I wanted to find a new career that allowed me to connect with people. My career advisor, Bonnie, was thorough, quick and to the point”.
“I cannot thank you enough for your assistance with helping me get back on track to getting qualified for a job I know I will enjoy. I was very lost and felt overwhelmed and directionless when I came to see you, and you gave me focus and practical assistance for which I will be forever grateful.”
"I was lost and overwhelmed with where to start, but thanks to your support and guidance I am back on track. I am feeling confident to sell myself as a person worthy of a job, even at my age."
"The process, explanation and recommendations provided accurately targeted my strengths and provided me with options I may not have realised for myself. The friendly and professional guidance offered also made this process clear and easy to follow".
"I have learnt more than you can imagine! Fabulous course - and thanks to my mentor for their expertise and guidance. By narrowing down my options the program really did provide me with an excellent option to move forward".
"The Skills Checkpoint program gave me choice, ownership and empowerment to invest in my own future, in a way and time that best suited my needs whilst gaining two qualifications. It was invaluable to my self-esteem, confidence, future business needs and will translate into stronger knowledge, better services and more choice for my clients! Talk about a win – win…and yes – I am sharing it with colleagues, networks and in those random conversations where the most unexpected openings provide an opportunity to share the great things this program could do for others like me".
"Since starting the program, I have completed my TAE upgrade, first aid courses, mandated notification etc., and will eventually pick up my Masters again later. I have now been employed with several groups in different areas. Things have really changed quickly - thank you!"
My mentor has been very generous with his support when I felt a bit overwhelmed with choice, and then facilitating the payment for my training program. The practical tips you provided helped to transform my resume and cover letter. I was stunned at the difference it made, getting a call the very next day after applying. I am enjoying my new role driving buses to assist indigenous and other clients getting to critical medical appointments".
“This programme has been an excellent opportunity for me to upskill in areas where digital disruption is changing my work and industry.”
“Skills Checkpoint Program outcome for me was positive. I have had 4 different jobs all in different fields since completing my training.”
“I used the recommended resume tips to prepare an application with a recruitment agency, and as a result I had a call saying it will proceed to the next step. Following the guidelines delivered success and I am now so much more confident as a result of this whole process. My consultant was terrific, very professional, and extremely knowledgeable in what she does, and she personalised the whole process to suit my situation”.
“The program has been a very positive experience for me given my advancing age and perceived bias towards employment of younger workers. It has helped clarify my work position and fortified me to continue participating in the economy for many more years to come”.
“Everything has been discussed with me with the upmost professional and informative way, I thank you for this, you have made it possible for me to move forward in my career with relative ease”.
“Received the perfect help to further enhance my knowledge and training towards a new career. I am now working full time.”
“I have already recommended about 6 of my friends and half of them are now studying.”
“The Training received was excellent and enabled me to change careers, for which I am very grateful.”
“Staff at Skills Checkpoint were quick to respond to my application and helped me achieve my training goals. As a result, I now have additional qualifications to support me in my career. I am so very grateful and pleased to have this opportunity!”
Not knowing what to expect, I have had a seamless transition into study. The process of application is straightforward and the assistance from staff has been professional, friendly and stress-free.
Having to re-join the workforce at an older age, the help and assistance given to me by BUSY At Work was invaluable.
I had completely lost my self confidence after losing my job due to redundancy in 2020 and due to my age. Having spoken with Bonnie, I started rebuilding that lost confidence, She has provided so much information which I can use in trying to re-join the workforce and broaden my horizon. Bonnie is such fun to chat with and very knowledgeable. What a legend!
I'm looking forward to being able to go back to doing some Study. It has been a long time!! Been a while since I've done anything like this and I am really welcoming the chance to finally have the opportunity to get re-skilled, and hopefully begin a new career going forward as a result.
I am very glad I made the decision to make that phone call to BUSY At Work and get myself re skilled and actually stand a chance of being employed and earning a decent salary. I would definitely recommend signing up, take the plunge and get the ball rolling.
As an employee of 32 years with a large company, who was made redundant, I benefited from BUSY At Work's information, ideas and education. They explained the many avenues available to me and allowed me to broaden my ideas of other career paths open to me.
Accessing the Skills Check Point program meant I could gain the training and skills needed for re-entry and new
employment in the workforce, now that all my children are adults. Gratitude to BUSY At Work for assisting with this incentive for a single woman, 50+ grandmother, from a disadvantaged background.
