Training and Screening:

All candidates attend Job Readiness Training [could be linked to skills training page] where self-image and interview preparation is taught.

Following this, Employability Interviews are conducted to determine their skills sets and readiness to enter the job market or recommend for further vocational training. To minimize the hiring risk, we also conduct at least 1 reference check per candidate.

Additional services

We also provide administrative support for scheduling interviews with the candidates as well as assistance with on-boarding. Employers have the option of conducting the interviews at our premises.
