Food & Fibre Gippsland – Innovative Learning Portal Created in Gippsland
Employment has been impacted in a variety of ways in the current COVID-19 environment, but an award-winning Gippsland training provider has seized the opportunity to lead the way with an innovative new online portal to ready job seekers for roles and opportunities post pandemic.
Employability Skills Training (EST) plays a vital role in preparing job seekers for the workplace through interactive learning experiences based around real work settings, and exposure to various work environments.
Gippsland-based training provider FGM Consultants anticipated the disruption COVID-19 would cause, and quickly swung into action to migrate their EST, part of the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment Youth Jobs PaTH program, into a digital platform.

JVEN Program – A life-changing journey from Jobseeker to Business Owner
For many years Tracee was unable to work due to her epilepsy. Once she was ready to join the workforce, she lacked confidence and found it very difficult to get a foot in the door.
After six months of job-hunting Tracee registered with Jobs Victoria Partner FGM Consultants, based in Dandenong. Tracee was keen to work as a cook or kitchen hand. FGM Consultants and Jobs Victoria supported her to get job-ready by coordinating food handling certificates, training her in interview skills and providing her with clothes and fuel vouchers for interviews.
Very soon Tracee was supported into a role in the staff canteen at the Australian Meat Group (AMG) in Dandenong North. AMG employs around 500 people and the canteen is a busy independent business that provides great quality meals to the AMG staff from 5am each day.
Tracee started as a casual and proved herself indispensable very quickly. A year later she was given an incredible opportunity: to purchase the business herself. Tracee and her husband now own and run T & J’s Canteen. Tracee’s journey from long-term unemployment to independent business owner is truly inspirational.
“I always thought I would never get a job. Who would employ me?” says Tracee.
“Jobs Victoria helped me to see that I could work in the workforce.”
“You can do whatever you want to do in life, you’ve just got to make it happen.”
