19 locals end APTC Labour Mobility International prep course
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 5 February 2020.
“Nineteen (19) Solomon Islanders successfully completed a two-week Labour Mobility International Preparation course with the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC), aimed at preparing them to live and work in Australia under the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS).
“Delivered in Honiara from 2-13 December 2019, the training was APTC's first-ever pilot project for selected participants who were recommended by the governments of Solomon Islands and Australia.
“The course provided participants with introductory information about living and working in Australia as they progress through the labour mobility pathway.
“Aimed at mitigating safety, security and health risks abroad, the workshop included components on financial literacy facilitated by the Pacific Financial Inclusion Program (PFIP). Participants also learned digital literacy and work preparedness skills via a gamified application developed by PLAN International, entitled 'Off to Work'.
“A cadet electrician by profession, Shadrach Osuana said joining the PLS to work in Australia will help fulfil his dream of living a better life.”
