Bhutanese Employment Advocate Program
TAFE NSW Riverina Institute has created a program for Bhutanese students, working closely with industry employers. The program focuses on the need to build a stronger understanding of the work, language and culture in Australia for English language students, especially the Bhutanese community.
Local industry contacts in the accommodation, manufacturing and recycling industries agreed to supply suitable work placement opportunities for students. This mentoring approach provides significant benefits to the students and the host workplaces. The program gradually increases the number of days at work and decreases the direct classroom participation. Classes are customised around the specific needs of the students to support them in their engagement with the workplace culture and language. The program has been hailed for its innovation and success.Show me courses like this
