How is the program structured?
There are two cohorts of Vic Ready: VR1 and VR2. VR1 offers career skill development through interactive modules. After completing all VR1 modules, you will receive an invitation to register for the VR2 cohort which will offer you more focused smaller group learning opportunities led by a VR Advisor and connected to a network of peers working towards similar goals (e.g. career exploration, further education, finding a job). The VR2 program also offers you to connect one-on-one with an alumni mentor from your industry of interest. Throughout both programs, you will have one-on-one support from VR Advisors.
