SPORT FOR ALL SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
The Sport for All sport store exists to provide training & employment pathways for young people with barriers to employment.
The Sport for All social enterprise exists to create pathways for social and economic inclusion
by offering long-term unemployed and/or otherwise disadvantaged young people
accredited training, paid employment & pre-employment training in Retail & Warehousing.
By increasing their capacity for paid employment and/or accredited & pre-employment training, graduates of the Sport For All training programs will be more socially and economically included because they will have improved their employability capacity and increased their education.
With the support of the Bank of Melbourne Neighbourhood Fund, the Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund & the Westpac Foundation, 90 young people with barriers to employment will participate in a 15 day tailored pre-employment accredited training program (Certificate II in Work Skills & Vocational Pathways FSK20113) with on-the-job work experience in the Sport for All Retail & Warehousing facilities. By providing the trainees with supervised, accredited pre-employment training and a tailored practical work experience plan over a 120 hour period, trainees will increase their capacity for paid employment and/or accredited training.
PRE-EMPLOYMENT TRAINING PROGRAM
With the support of the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, more than 5,000 hours of paid employment for 10 young people with barriers to employment will participate in an accredited traineeship & paid employment training program in Retail or Warehousing. By providing the trainees with supervised, individual accredited training and a tailored paid work experience plan over a 12 month period, trainees will increase their capacity for paid employment and/or further accredited training.
