A JOON­DALUP 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 aims to en­sure young peo­ple meet the needs of the em­ployer and are sup­ported to set­tle into em­ploy­ment.

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

Em­ployer en­gage­ment con­sul­tant Mia Tay­lor and ca­reer ad­vo­cate Hay­den Shar­rett’s work sup­ported sus­tain­able em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple aged 1521, in­clud­ing through ap­pren­tice­ships, trainee­ships and in­tern­ships.

“Youth Jobs Path was a win­win 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.

Stir­ling Skills Train­ing will hold an event called ‘Sup­port­ing youth through col­lab­o­ra­tion’ for em­ploy­ers at the Growth Box in Malaga on Novem­ber 22 from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
