Work Skills

Do you know what skills you need to prepare for work in Australia?

Three things that will help you to get a good job in Australia are:

  • Your ability to communicate in English – how well you can speak, read, and write English in the workplace
  • Having the right skills for the job you want
  • Getting appropriate work experience

When you join an AMES Australia Work Skills course, you will be supported to achieve these important steps.

You will learn about Australian workplace communication and work culture, gain industry specific skills, and in some courses receive a work placement of 40 hours in your chosen industry.

Not sure where to start? You can talk to AMES Australia about the type of work you hope to get in Australia and we will support you to develop a training pathway.
