Success stories

What customers say about the Skills Hub


‘Peter’, a 35 year old had been struggling to find stable employment for years. He decided to contact the Skills Hub for advice on refreshing his skills to make himself more competitive when applying for work. Since the phone call with the Skills Hub, Peter has enrolled in a Statement of Attainment in Construction and a Statement of Attainment in Process Manufacturing – both areas of skills shortages and predicted strong demand for workers.

"The breadth of training options overwhelmed me a little at first, but the Skills Hub specialist took the time to talk me through each choice and recommended some great options…they were very kind and encouraging during what was a difficult time for me."

‘Tony’, a 52-year-old had been operating boat vessels for years, but the ongoing stability of his job had been impacted by the floods. He contacted the Skills Hub to find out what his options were in terms of upskilling so he could find a better job. He decided to enrol in the Certificate III in Maritime Operations.
