SkillsPlus and BRACE

SkillsPlus and BRACE are two fellow non-profit organisations that merged in 2013. We merged because we know that together we can make a collaborative effort to improve lives and strengthen communities. Our mission is to empower people through education, training and employment.

As a non-profit organisation, any profit that we make is invested back into the community either by being put back into programs and services delivered, or by going towards the development of new programs that benefits the community.

SkillsPlus Employment Services awarded five year contract by the Federal Government!

SkillsPlus Ltd have been awarded a five-year contract by the Department of Employment to operate jobactive (formerly known as Job Services Australia) in the newly formed Inner-Melbourne and the South East Melbourne Employment Regions. We were an integral member of a consortium based bid for the new contract led by AMES and support by ECHO and Wesley Mission Victoria. Our Employment Services will continue in Frankston, Rosebud, Dandenong, Cheltenham and Springvale and now expand to include new sites in Pakenham, Hastings and Mornington. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in our tender to continue to deliver Employment Services in Regional Victoria.
