Stitching Up The Gap To Take A Seat With Us

We’ve all seen the incredibly frustrating effects of having labor shortages within industries across the board in Australia – which has resulted in unprecedented delays, a backlog of orders, as well as many small businesses struggling to find employees to keep up with their exponentially growing workload.

The Australian Furniture Association have identified the significant labor shortage for upholsterers and textile fabricators, and have teamed up to support the Multi-Industry Collaboration Group (MICG) to create the latest job-skills taster program – ‘Take a Seat With Us!’

The 12 week course is fully funded (which means it’s free for all participants) and is supported by 5 industry groups including the furniture, caravan, boating, automotive and specialist textiles industries.

Expressions of interest for this course are now officially open, so whether you are looking to increase your skill set for yourself or for your employees, this course has some incredible opportunities.


The ‘Take a Seat With Us! Taster Program’ will deliver study in the following skills units/standards:

  • AUR32320 – Certificate III in Automotive and Marine Trimming Technology
  • MSF30713 – Certificate III in Upholstery
  • MST30220 – Certificate III in Manufactured Textile Products
