This year the 2011 Child Cancer Foundation Appeal will run through- out March, with a street collection on Friday 25. The Foundation wants to raise $1 million during Appeal Month to support children with cancer and their families. Three children are diagnosed with cancer each week in New Zealand and collec- tively undergo a total of 75,000 treatments and procedures annually. Each child and their family is provided with a dedicated Child Cancer Foundation family sup- port coordinator for their entire cancer journey. The Foundation receives no funding from the gov- ernment or any other cancer charities. It s easy to help and just an hour or two spent collecting can make a real difference. Sign up with friends or take own- ership of a site with your local club. The Foun- dation will give you all the support you need. To volunteer as a street collector call the Child Cancer Foundation on 0800 424 453, email appeal.coordinator@ childcancer.org.nz, or go to www.childcancer.org.nz Help for skilled migrants Unitec Institute of Tech- nology is introducing a new programme to help raise the chances of employment for new migrants with high qualifications settling in Auckland. The Workplace Com- munication for Skilled Migrants programme at Unitec s Mt Albert Cam- pus aims to assist migrants with finding work at the level appro- priate to their experience and qualifications. We think there are a large number of migrants in Auckland who have quite high level professional qualifications who are either not working or who are working at a lower standard than what they should, says Department of Language Studies head Nick Shackleford. This programme will help them explore what options are available to them. For example, with engineers we would like to offer them the chance to explore what opportunities there are to become an engineer in New Zealand. Nick says the new pro- gramme is unique to others currently on offer, in that it focuses on the language of the work- place that migrants need to be comfortable with in order to understand their roles. The Workplace Com- munication for Skilled Migrants programme is also unique in that it has the backing of the Department of Social Development. The pro- gramme is free for migrants who meet some criteria they have set in place. This is a qualification that people will be able walk away with being more confident in fitting into the New Zealand working environment -- which can be quite daunting if you are new to the country and not as fluent in English as others are, Nick says. Unitec can also help migrants ensure they meet job requirements and assist them with job applications and inter- view techniques. What makes this pro- gramme unique is the focus on the language of the workplace, the real language of the work- place and work place- ment. In the first eight weeks of the programme, students will do two courses from Unitec s Graduate Certificate in English as an Additional Language and Employ- ment in a Globalised World and Employment Language Studies programmes. These will help them develop their English language skills needed for the work- place. Students will also be able to undertake at least 40 hours of work experience in a suitable workplace, that is rel- evant to their skills and qualifications. There is then the option to either continue work experience or move into full-time paid employment. Visit www.unitec.ac.nz for more information on the programme.
