Employability Skills Training

The Youth Jobs PaTH is a flexible new approach to youth employment. The $752 million initiative is designed to support young people under the age of 25 years to gain the employability skills and real work experience they need to get and keep a job, and provides incentives for employers to take them on. The Youth Jobs PaTH provides three elements: Prepare – Trial – Hire.

Prepare helps young people become job ready by providing intensive pre-employment training endorsed by industry.

A consultation paper is now open for comment on employability skills training. The Department is seeking written submissions from employers, job seekers, training providers and the general public on the questions in the paper. All submissions should be emailed to employability@employment.gov.au  by 5.00pm (AEST) on 31 August 2016.
