    Skills for Life - Bathurst

    Join us and players from the Panthers NRL Team for our Bathurst Skills for Life program

    The 'Skills for Life' Program provides employability skills, industry-specific training, and facilitates connections with local employers who are eager to provide job opportunities. Run over three weeks and covers three specific areas; Cultural Engagement, Digital Skills and Industry Exploration.

    Cultural Engagement Week - The first week focuses on cultural revitalisation and is delivered by our cultural training partner Gadhungal Marring. This week focusses on participant engagement with culture, community and developing their integrity, self-worth and belonging. Some of the activities participants undertake during this week include ‘Welcoming to the ways of our ancestors’ and ‘My Story, Your Story, Our Story’.

    Digital Walkabout Week - In the second week, the program shifts its focus to developing digital skills. Participants receive their own laptops and engage in various immersive projects covering practical digital skills, presentation skills, and employment-specific activities like utilising online job boards. What sets this program apart for First Nation participants is the continuation of cultural and community engagement from the first week, seamlessly integrated into the digital skills activities.

    Industry Exploration and Jobs Fair Week - The third week provides an in-depth exploration of a specific industry, such as retail or construction, delivering insights and job-specific training. This preparation ensures that participants are immediately ready to pursue entry-level positions. The program actively involves local employers who we invite to attend and showcase their job opportunities and directly connect with participants to their open jobs and career pathways. 

    Meet the Player Session - What makes this program truly engaging for participants is the opportunity to connect with professional First Nations athletes who co-facilitate the sessions, offering inspiration and guidance to everyone involved. So come along and meet our Star NRL guests!
