If you are not confident with reading, writing or speaking English, you may find it hard to get a job. The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program can help you!
There are two streams: English language training for migrants at a range of levels, and the YESS (Youth Employment and Study Skills) program for job seekers aged 15-24.
You can get up to 800 hours of free training, starting at your own level and working at your own pace. You can study part-time or full-time while still looking for work or caring for your family.

You are eligible for the SEE program if you:
• are 15 to 64 years old
• are registered as a job seeker with Centrelink
• are not a full-time student
• are an Australian citizen or meet the rules on visa status and benefits

We offer the SEE program at our Meadowbank, St Leonards and Northern Beaches campuses. To make sure you can do this program and get a referral, you should talk to the Department of Human Services (Centrelink) or your local Employment Service Provider (Job Services Australia).
The SEE program is funded by the Commonwealth government through the Department of Industry.
