English classes to help find job

MAKING it easier to get a job and understand children’s homework, residents and newly arrived migrants are being urged to register for a free, online, English language course starting next week.

Cumberland City Council has partnered with TAFE NSW to provide the free classes in the local government area which is one of the most diverse in NSW if not Australia.
Auburn Centre for Community’s Sam Ryan said the classes were designed to help people improve their English language skills and to help them settle into the community.
“Students have a great opportunity to build their skills in speaking, writing, reading and listening,” she said.
“Besides making life in Australia a little easier, the course provides a pathway to future TAFE NSW training and employment opportunities.
“Students often say that learning English has helped them understand their children’s homework and read books which means they can help them with their learning too.”
Ms Ryan says that by successfully completing this course, you will be able to effectively communicate and participate in an English-speaking vocational education learning environment.
“I invite all to register for this wonderful opportunity,” she said.
The course is on offer from Thursday, February 3, to Thursday, April 7, 9.30am-1.30pm.
For enrolments, email sam.ryan@cumberland.nsw.gov.au or call 8757 9498.
