MCNT's Information Sessions and Workshops

Through its various funded projects and as a core activity arranges and actively markets at least 30 information sessions and workshops each year - with expert presenters and on a range of topics and themes – to the MCNT's diverse clientele and members (including recently arrived and established migrants) as well as members of general community. The MCNT regularly consults with its constituency to identify issues of concern in the multicultural community – particularly new arrivals - to seek feedback about current information gaps. "After hour" interpreter-assisted information sessions and workshops are regularly scheduled on evenings and are usually very productive well attended by the MCNT's clients and members. The MCNT welcomes feedback and is constantly improving enhancing the outreach of this core activity to its multicultural constituency.

MCNT's Migrant Employment Handbook Project

The MCNT believes that meaningful employment and opportunities for career development are integral to the settlement experience and essential to social and economic participation for migrants. The MCNT's A5 sized Migrant Employment Handbook is an effective and convenient resource for newly-arrived migrants and refugees. The 2009 edition was well received and was in very high demand. The new edition – as hardcopy and online versions – is being developed and will include updated information about relevant legislation, characteristics of the Australian workplace, training options, industrial relations, and the various licences and tickets. There will be useful local contacts and valuable information for migrant jobseekers including tips about writing resumes and job applications, interview techniques, and gaining work experience.
