Skillset's Dubbo staff have called into business across the city this week to raise awareness of the need to support employment, skills and education in regional NSW.
The new SkillForce campaign aims to increase employment opportunities through offering mentoring programs, recruitment services and job pathway programs while also raising awareness of trade careers in schools.
Since the launch of SkillForce500 in October 2020, Skillset has engaged and placed more than 100 people across the Central West and Far West Orana regions. The goal is to hit 500 placements by the end of March.
