Work not quite so daunting

Bhawani Subedi and Mon Poudel now have a handle on some of the mysteries of English. Picture: MATTHEW SMITHWICKENTERING the workforce is no longer quite the task it was to a group of Bhutanese residents.

They now have their certificate II in general education for adults, giving them the skills to find work.

Mon Poudel, who hopes to become a taxi driver, said the course had helped him greatly with his English.

He moved to Albury from Nepal four years ago.

“My sister was working in Albury and told me it was a good place to live,” he said. “The environment is so good here, everything is so green.”

Bhawani Subedi has already landed a job with the Albury Volunteer Resource Bureau as an interpreter.

Edge Workforce trainer Shirley Buttery said the six-month course was structured to break down language barriers, teach problem-solving skills and “everything to do with the workplace”.

“Bhawani was great helping others with their English,” she said.
