Youth Jobs PaTH (Prepare – Trial – Hire) has been designed to support young people aged under 25 years into jobs. Youth Jobs PaTH covers three elements:

  • Prepare: Employability Skills Training to help young people understand the expectations of Employers in the recruitment process and in the workplace.
  • Trial: voluntary Internships of four to 12 weeks to give young people a chance to demonstrate their skills in the workplace where there is a reasonable prospect of subsequent employment.
  • Hire: a Youth Bonus wage subsidy of up to $10,000 to support the employment of young people.

Youth Jobs PaTH Employability Skills Training (EST) is the prepare element and gives young people the opportunity to enhance their employability through targeted training. Participating in EST will help young people understand the expectations of Employers in both the recruitment process and as a new employee in the workplace. EST is made up of two training courses with different content focuses.

Courses are 75 hours and generally delivered face-to-face in a group setting. Courses are delivered for 25 hours a week for three weeks for Participants with a full-time participation requirement and 15 hours a week for five weeks for Participants with a part-time participation requirement.

Participants and their jobactive or Trial Provider (Employment Services providers) receive an assessment of their Learning Outcomes following the completion of the Course, which they can use to promote themselves to businesses for PaTH Internships, other work experience opportunities or employment.
