A class of savvy young locals recently  got the insider information on writing resumes that stand out from the stack.

The free workshop was held at the Byford Library and kicked off the SJ Shire’s Skill Up program – an initiative which aims to empower young local minds with invaluable skills to prepare them for the workforce.

Skill Up caters to people between the ages of 12 and 24, and consists of eight different courses between February and November.

The next cab off the rank is the First Aid course, held this Saturday, February 24. Royal Life Saving WA will deliver the one-day course – a requirement for many jobs these days.
Participants for the First Aid workshop are required to be between the ages of 15 and 24 to participate, and spots are filling up fast.

March will bring an opportunity for anyone wanting to enter the construction industry to tick off an essential requirement.

The White Card Training workshop aims to enhance awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others, and will be administered by Down to Earth Training and Assessing – a well-regarded registered training organisation.
Participants are required to be between the ages of 14 and 24 to participate in this course.

And there’s a host of other workshops in the months after, including Responsible Service of Alcohol, Mental Health Basics, and Interview Success.
