Transition to Work After a Long Absence - Sydney Course

Jump on the pathway to your next job! The MCC Careers Centre can provide you with professional careers guidance with our Work Ready Program.

The first step to becoming work ready is to undertake an ERS Career Development Assessment using the Employment Readiness Scale™ (ERS) tool. The ERS is an online self-assessment tool that measures how ready you are for work, identifies gaps in work readiness, creates action plans to move you towards becoming work ready and makes referrals to programs and services to help you find work.

After the ERS Career Development Assessment, you can enrol in this workshop where you will learn how to transition back to work after a long absence with the least amount of stress.

After a long period of unemployment or leave, it can be daunting to return to work. You will explore some typical challenges in the workplace, as well as strategies that you can employ to overcome them.

There will be an opportunity to assess your current career options. You will learn about transferrable skills and have an opportunity to assess what your own transferrable skills are. You will evaluate your skill gaps and explore options that can help you close these skill gaps in order to open up more possibilities in your career.

We will teach you about career development planning and by the end of the workshop, you will be given an opportunity to create your first personal career action plan.

Where to from here? After this course, the next step in the Work Ready Program is to work on the skill gaps that have been identified. Our 1 day job ready workshops are perfect for all abilities and include:

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning

Credit transfer (CT) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Credit transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for components of a qualification based on identified equivalence in content and learning outcomes between matched qualifications.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.

This is underpinned by the AQF definition of credit as follows:

  • Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications.
  • Credit reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification and may be through credit transfer, articulation, recognition of prior learning or advanced standing.
