Chelou’s Story

Chelou’s Story

Chelou, a single mother of 2 girls aged 4 and 6, moved to Australia from the Philippines in 2014. She had no employment history in Australia and lacked confidence.

Chelou was trying to seek employment, though had no CV or Cover letter. Her ParentsNext Engagement Officer assisted her in creating these documents as well as guiding her in different ways to hand out her CV to local businesses and online.

She decided to complete the First Aid course with Stirling Skills Training in December 2020 to increase her skills and employment options.

With the support and guidance from her ParentsNext Engagement Officer, Chelou met with a job opportunity with CR Cleaning. She was very interested in this position and an interview was arranged. Chelou was coached through interview prepping and gained a work trial. She was very pleased with the assistance offered by the staff at SST.

Chelou is now an employee at CR Cleaning! She works 20 hours a week and recently got promoted to Team Leader. She is thankful to the Stirling Skills Training for the encouragement she had received whilst in the ParentsNext program.
