Employment and Training

Catalyst is a program we offer to support your employment and training goals.

There are three parts to Catalyst: Coaching; Training; and Funding. You can access all three or only one, depending on your needs.

Who can use Catalyst?

Any SGCH tenant or household member who is looking for training or employment can use Catalyst. There are some additional eligibility criteria for people wishing to access Catalyst Funding. For more information about these, please see the Catalyst Funding guidelines or contact our Employment Opportunities Team.

Catalyst Coaching helps you find current employment and training opportunities, through:

  • signposting you to appropriate third party training courses. 

Third party training courses

The Employment Opportunities Team can help direct you to relevant third party training courses.

Job Skills workshop

We run a tailored Job Skills workshop four times a year, in January, April, July and September. The two-day course covers:

  • Resume writing: How to tailor your resume to impress employers.
  • Cover letters: Write a cover letter that will stand out from other applicants.
  • Interview preparation: Learn how to prepare for interviews and conquer those nerves.
  • Interview practice: Put your new skills into practice during mock interviews.

SGCH fully funds the course, so there is no cost to you. You must be able to commit to the full two-day course to be eligible to attend. Places are reserved on a first come, first served basis, and a maximum of 12 customers can attend each workshop.

Catalyst Funding helps our customers overcome any financial barriers which are preventing them from finding training or employment. Funding may be available for items such as:

  • accredited training administration fees
  • employer-required training
  • work-related licensing (e.g. Construction White Card)
  • pre-employment checks (e.g. national police check).

Funding is available on a case-by-case basis, and the amount will depend on your individual needs.
