Retail is the second largest employing industry in Australia. It is the largest employer of young workers and women, and offers job opportunities in all regions. Retail is a fantastic way for people to start their working life, or to make a career change into.
The NRA has been delivering our Ready for Retail course in Queensland for several years with high job outcomes and course completion rates. We collaborate with community organisations, job actives and businesses that share our value of helping people from all backgrounds prepare for working in the retail industry.
We are really excited to announce that this year, our Ready for Retail program is a finalist in the South East Regional Queensland Training Awards for the Community Training Initiative of the Year. Our strong community collaboration with Employment Plus and Grand Plaza Shopping Centre is helping the Brown Plains community meet the training needs of young, unemployed people in the area.
Our current collaborations include:
– Transition to Work, Browns Plains
– ParentsNext Ready for Retail, Beenleigh
– Coles Ready for Retail for people with a disability, Metropolitan and Sunshine Coast
– Ready for Retail, Cairns
The relationship we have with NRA is exceptional, NRA have customised the Certificate III in Retail to our business needs which works for our participants. The high quality of trainers and the support they provide to our students is above and beyond. Suzi not only is a fabulous trainer, she exceeds expectations with Employment Plus and the participants. They quickly develop a great relationship and rapport with her and thoroughly enjoy the training which is providing our youth with inner confidence, self- esteem and drive they didn't know existed. We look forward to developing the collaboration we have with NRA looking forward.
