Welcome to WorkVentures!

We are Australia’s oldest not-for-profit social enterprise that helps unemployed youth get a career start in technology by providing tech support and refurbished computers to our diverse community of seniors, students, migrants and CentreLink clients.

We refurbish, sell and support low-cost computers as well as operate a technology repair workshop – the ITeC Repair Centre - that repairs commercial electronics such as telephone exchanges, point-of-sale systems and medical equipment to name a few. As a not-for-profit enterprise, all profit from our businesses are used to help young trainees gain IT skills experience in our workplace learning environment to launch their career in technology.

If you are looking for good value in a PC or laptop, have a need for commercial equipment repair or want to streamline the search for experienced tech staff who are work-ready - you’ve come to the right place!

 

 

          

         

KickStart Academy Blog

When it comes to training in our Kickstart program for youth and migrants, we have a secret sauce in our training called ‘lean learning’ that we stole from the software development industry. In essence when you take out all the ‘fat’ in learning and teach only what people need to know, it takes a lot less time. 

In essence, a university degree costs tens of thousands of dollars and partly they need to justify that by making the learning take a long time.

We just completed a KickStart program for computer software testing that had the kids trained and into good jobs within 13 weeks.

Support for Seniors

Hi there people, I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to a guy named Jason who today went to a lot of trouble and spent a long time on the phone to me sorting out my boot-up problem.

At 81 years of age I was a bit slow carrying out all his directions, but finally the problem was solved, and I'm pleased to say that it's now performing faultlessly.

So thanks again to you all for the service you provide to people like me.

Best wishes
