WorkVentures is Australia's oldest social enterprise charity with the mission of providing technology training to those left on the far side of the digital divide.
To achieve our goal of social inclusion through technology, we currently focus on providing vocational IT skills training for marginalised young people at our professional ICT repair centre in Mascot. Understanding how to use and apply technology solutions will be key in the decades to come for helping Australia's youth compete for jobs in a global marketplace.
In this environment our trainees have the chance to gain valuable business experience while learning technology skills. As a registered training organisation (RTO), our trainees also have the opportunity to acquire nationally recognised certification in technology and related office administration skills.
"Learning is change; change in the world and change in people. No real education leaves a person unchanged. Learning is about the pragmatics of everyday life but it's also about unfolding what you are here to do. Developing your talents, exploring your natural interests and developing a career that doesn't go against your natural grain...this is critical for a happy person and a healthy community."
