Three fully Funded Training Opportunities – Targeting ex ADF Members, their families and individuals transitioning out of the ADF, AFP and other security agencies.

Encircle and EDit  have partnered with Asset College deliver three programs aiming to support Queenslanders into sustainable employment via formal qualification outcomes supplemented by employability training and support.

Promoting yourself better, obtaining nationally recognised qualifications and having direct access to employers seeking people like you.  If that sounds like something you want, please continue to read on.

The Encircle / EDIT program delivers nationally recognised qualifications (Certificate III in Security Operations and Certificate III in Business Administration) plus our Defence career transition and workplace integration course which is all proudly funded by the Queensland Government through its Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.  The EDIT training and each of the Certificate courses are combined into one training program.
