MWLFS Launches Strengths & Skills Assessment Centre

06-Aug-2018

Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions’ (MWLFS) newly opened Strengths and Skills Assessment Centre is a valuable resource for jobseekers to identify their skills and strengths and determine what services or support they need to achieve their employment goals. 

Just one of the services offered by the Centre, made possible by a partnership with local optometrist, Dr Steven Brown of Hunter Optical Specialists, is tailored eye testing for jobseekers.

“Approximately 40% of high school students have visual problems,” says Dr Brown.

MWLFS Youth Support Mentor at the Centre, Naomi Johnson, said the bulk-billed  eye testing on offer is a great opportunity for jobseekers to identify underlying issues that could be impacting their literacy, numeracy, IT and foundation employability skills. 

“An increasing number of jobseekers are telling us they are unable to read. When we dig deeper we are finding it is because the words blur or move on the page, or they can’t process or focus on what they’re seeing.” 

For more information about the MWLFS Strengths and Skills Centre, please call the team at MWLFS in Maitland on 4015 8400.
