About us

As a result of coming to WACC people change the direction of their lives forever.

Here at WACC, our aim is to support you in your life and your career.  We recognise that most people have had some poor work experiences and sometimes no job at all.  When you are out of work, you are fearful about money and your future and may lose confidence in yourself.  People forget how capable and talented they are because all the positive things somehow get lost when you are unemployed.

With the support we provide at WACC, you will be able to increase your skills to meet the constant changes required in the job market, and if you wish, develop new transferable skills to move into other areas of work.  We can also support you to acquire the skills and confidence to work for yourself.
