Career Transition Assistance

Supporting over 45’s on their journey to employment

It’s never too late to transition into your dream job. If you’re over 45, and you’ve been looking to make a career change, we can help you make that happen. 

What is Career Transition Assistance?

Career Transition Assistance (CTA) is a new program to support over 45’s on their path to employment. The scheme aims to increase the job readiness of mature-age job seekers, boosting their confidence and providing tailored assistance such as aligning job applications to their transferable skills and experience.

Who is eligible for Career Transition Assistance?

To enrol in the Career Transition Assistance program, you must be:

  • Aged 45 years or over
  • Registered with a jobactive provider

Not currently registered with jobactive? Make sure you talk with a jobactive provider, and register with the program as a volunteer job seeker. 

If you access the program through us, we can then refer you to CTA, so you can enrol in the scheme.

How are we different as a CTA Provider?

Our CTA program is tailored to your needs with a focus on individual employment goals, learning the latest digital technology and building your confidence in selling yourself to potential employers.

We offer a collaborative, adult learning environment where you can learn with other like-minded individuals and up-skill yourself with new industry trends. We will work with you to help you fine-tune your job search techniques and link you with local employers so you can put your best foot forward.

With our CTA you have one-on-one support with your own professional facilitator, every step of the way. They have extensive experience in career development and will cover a range of topics and modules to help expand your horizons and open-up new and exciting possibilities for the future.

It’s simple. We understand your needs and are here to help in a way that matters to you. Having supported over 3,500 people aged 45+ into employment, we have the passion and experience to get you where you want to be.
