lobbying and the conducting of experimental trial programming.

CTV Perth has developed numerous award-winning Work-for-the-Dole projects,
including the extensive Work-for-the-Dole programmes which won a Perth
City Council Encouragement Award for shows such as Perth City Talks
to CTV and Triple 8. The Work-for-the-Dole Scheme gives unemployed people
an ideal opportunity to develop some useful skills they can potentially
use in the workforce.
The programme Triple 8 was a panel-style programme based on the concept
of dividing our day into 8 hours of work, 8 hours rest and 8 hours recreation.
The Perth City Talks to CTV series talks to the young or the old about
issues which are prevalent in today’s society. The programme’s camera
crews, researchers, interviewers and editors come from the Work-for-the-Dole
Scheme and go through a rigorous but short CTV course before commencing
Our Training and Workshops
