PaTH helps young peo­ple start work Lucy Jarvis

Eastern Reporter - - News In Brief -

A NORTH­ERN sub­urbs train­ing provider is seek­ing young peo­ple and em­ploy­ees to take part in its tran­si­tion to work ser­vice as part of a na­tional strat­egy.

Stir­ling Skills Train­ing is a not-for-profit ser­vice provider that helps en­sure young peo­ple meet the needs of em­ploy­ers and are sup­ported to set­tle into work.

The ser­vice is part of the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s Youth Em­ploy­ment Strat­egy and at the core of the strat­egy is the Youth Jobs PaTH (Pre­pare, Trial, Hire) ini­tia­tive.

It sup­ports sus­tain­able em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple aged 15-21, in­clud­ing ap­pren­tice­ships, trainee­ships and in­tern­ships.

“Youth Jobs Path was a win-win sit­u­a­tion, giv­ing young par­tic­i­pants the chance to demon­strate their skills in the work­place to a po­ten­tial em­ployer, de­velop vo­ca­tional skills and im­prove their em­ploy­ment prospects,” direc­tor Bala Sup­piah said. “Em­ploy­ers may be el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive $1000 to trial an in­tern and if the in­tern is to be suc­cess­ful, this then leads into the third el­e­ment, hire.

“At this point, em­ploy­ers may be el­i­gi­ble for a youth bonus sub­sidy of up to $10,000.” Stir­ling Skills Train­ing will hold an event for em­ploy­ers at the Growth Box in Malaga on Novem­ber 22 from 11.30am-1.30pm.

To at­tend the Malaga event, call 0423 814 324 or email mtay­lor@stir­lingskill­strain­ing
