About Works Program

In 2008, Renewal SA established a community training and employment model to build capacity and maximise community and social inclusion benefits from our urban renewal activities.

Our earliest training employment programs were run within our Playford Alive project. The first programs proved so successful that we extended them into our Bowden project in 2012, then Tonsley, Port Adelaide, The Square at Woodville West in 2014, and more recently to Lot Fourteen and the Adelaide CBD.

Now known as the Works Program, initiatives carried out under this banner are developed in partnership with project partners, training providers and stakeholders to benefit whole communities.

The Works Program has secured more than $21 million in funding in partnership with stakeholders, resulting in more than 4,000 people benefiting from work experience and 2,000+ gaining paid employment through our initiatives to date.

Training + employment pathways

We partner with registered training organisations and stakeholders to deliver a range of training and pre-employment programs:

  • engagement, training and employment programs and initiatives
  • live training sites using Renewal SA-owned land to provide local on-site training models for registered training organisations.

These are designed to prepare people for work experience and paid opportunities with local employers.
