Multicultural Futures is excited to announce that Term 3 of the ‘World Music Café’ Enterprise Development Training Program starts in August 2020 and we are now seeking new participants to join the ‘WMC Team’.  

The innovative enterprise business training is free and delivered at the South Metropolitan TAFE campus in Thornlie as part of the nationally funded Multicultural Enterprise Development Project.

The program is designed for people of migrant and refugee backgrounds that may be currently receiving income support or are at risk of long-term economic exclusion due to lack of employment opportunities. The age focus is 16-64 years and, as a government acknowledged training program, voluntary participation is eligible for employment agency credits.

The key purpose of the training program is to enhance employability skills by gaining practical industry experience in events and business, using the ‘World Music Café’ enterprise as the vehicle for experiential learning. Enclosed is training package brochure that summarises the topics covered and the eligibility criteria.

The training is delivered over two 3-hour sessions every Monday and Wednesday afternoon for an eight-week term, plus the World Music Café team coordinate and present various World Music Café events across the south of Perth.

We are currently seeking eligible people to join the World Music Cafe in 2020 and request that you share this opportunity with your relevant networks that may have an interest in multicultural events
