Youth Jobs PaTH Industry Pilots Commencing This Month

Just before the Christmas break Employment Minister Michaelia Cash announced the outcome of the $10m Youth Jobs PaTH industry pilots tender. 

The pilots are aimed at providing greater industry input in selecting, training, matching and supporting job seekers.  They will include tailored and flexible training, industry specific internships, mentoring and extra support for those who need it.  The pilots will also offer apprenticeships and traineeships in some locations. 

The pilots will also inform the development of future employment services, including the design of future pre-employment and work experience programs. 

Young people registered with jobactive, Transition to Work or DES are eligible to participate in the industry-led pilots, which will run between January and June this year by nine organisations in the locations shown below:
