Chisholm - Reconnect

About this service

Reconnect is a Victorian Government funded program that provides wrap around support services to help vulnerable people to ease back into education, training and employment.

People registered with Reconnect are supported to access suitable training opportunities with a broad range of providers including Learn Locals, and private RTO’s, not only TAFE.

We have a team of five Reconnect Pathways Officers, who work collaboratively with other agencies to provide wrap around supports for Reconnect clients.   After developing a trusting relationship with each client,  we work together to plan a suitable individual pathway through education and training. We arrange regular one-to-one meetings to  assess learning and non-learning needs and career goals; identify barriers to successful engagement/make referrals to suitable supports; develop a learning, achievement and pathway plan; and support students transitioning to employment or further education.
