MWLFS partner with registered training providers to deliver a range of accredited training courses including TAFE NSW, REACH for Training, Learning Sphere, ATWEA and JobQuest.

Courses are implemented to develop job seeker skill sets, confidence and overall employability to meet local labour market demands. Skills for jobs that are available locally.

Courses can be Cert I, II or III and also short ‘tasters’ designed to give our job seekers a look at the industry and determine their interest. A key difference for training implemented by MWLFS is the delivery, we always try to have a heavy practical component rather than just class room delivery. We have found that the practical aspects of training delivery improves engagement and completion rates as well as increasing the overall learning. Courses are often held on site at MWLFS offices in Maitland and Cessnock, specifically for MWLFS job seekers.

Some examples of training opportunities available for job seekers:

Cert II Kitchen Operations

Cert II Horticulture

Bar Skills including RSA and RCG

Safe Food Handling

Coffee Skills

Cert II Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways

Basic Computer Skills and Administration, and more!

Job Seeker Feedback

I am very grateful to the staff at MWLFS for helping me to find a job. Since I started work back in October I have felt more positive about myself and life in general. It feels good to know that I’m contributing to the community and it also feels good to have a little more money in my pocket. The training that was suggested helped me to gain the confidence to know that I can do the job.


I never thought that I would get a job but MWLFS helped me to start my career with an admin traineeship. Now, 9 years later, I have a job that I love, increased duties and responsibilities and loving what I do.


I have always been interested in working in a florist. The training and work experience I did paid off and I now have a great job where I get to do the thing that I love most. The best part of my week is going to work.
