PaTH helps young people start work Lucy Jarvis
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 .com.au.
