THE Victoria Park Community Centre is running a course to help migrant women find employment.

The course will run from February 13 to March 6 and will feature information such as putting a resume together.

Centre manager Nicky Macdougall said the idea of running the course came as there was a high level of migrants around the Town of Victoria Park.

“The students will be able to put a CV together, gain interview skills and understand how to apply for a job,” she said.

“The selection criteria for certain jobs can be confusing so we want to help these women.

“We received a $1230 grant from the Town of Victoria Park, who are also supportive of migrant people.”

It is an exciting period for the venue, which until last December was known as the East Victoria Park Family and Community.

Dr Macougall said the name change occurred after a general meeting in October.

“The change happened because more people know Victoria Park and so it was easier for everyone,” she said.

The centre will have an open day for its Playgroup on February 1 between 9.30am and 11.30am.
