The application process is very straightforward! It’s all done online and shouldn’t take too long – just follow these steps:
Who should my references be from?
You’ll need to provide one written reference to support your application. This reference is a general personal reference from someone who knows you well. This reference should provide details of your personal qualities, your potential and your genuine need. The referee can be a teacher, employer, family friend, family member or someone else who knows you well.
You’ll also need to provide the name and contact number of someone who is working in the area you are interested in or who knows there is a need for skilled workers in this trade/vocation in rural Victoria. This person could be an employer, a business person, a community leader or someone else who can explain the need for your future skills in rural areas.
Important note about references
You’ll be required to submit your reference and referee details at the time of your application, so it’s important to have this information ready to go before you begin your application. You will be asked to copy and paste this reference into the application form, so make sure it’s in a format that allows you to do this.
