A unique space for young people in the Rose City

BEST Employment is offering more than just a job seeking service, with its Access Centre aimed at providing young people with a place to go and study or relax quietly.

BEST Employment training office Justine Constable said the organisation wanted the space to be unique in the Rose City.

"It's a community space, which is working really well," she said.

"It's a spot where people can come and access information, YouTube and video link or they can come in just to study and print off readings.

"We're getting 10-12 people per week in to use it, which is quite a lot.

"It's a very unique centre with a unique environment and we also do individual sessions to help people overcome whatever barriers they've got."

Corrina Bugeia, who regularly uses the centre, said it was a great initiative.

"I've been coming here since it's been open," Corrina said.

"It's been extremely handy - I left school midway through year 11 and it's been far easier to learn here with the face-to-face interaction."

As well as multiple computers, the Access Centre features couches, a coffee machine and kitchen, and an interactive whiteboard.
