Youth Jobs PaTH Industry Pilots

The PaTH Industry Pilots (Industry Pilots) are industry-led employment pathways to help young people into work using elements of Youth Jobs PaTH, employment services and other support.

Young people will be directly connected to employers with significant workforce demand and in growing industries. The Industry Pilots responds to calls from industry for greater input in selecting, training, matching and supporting young job seekers into work.

Nine organisations including Employers, Group Training Organisations, industry peak bodies and other employer representatives will deliver the Industry Pilots in both regional and metropolitan areas around Australia. Selected industries include aged, disability and community care; accommodation, food services and tourism; business; engineering and electro technology; retail; transport and logistics; ICT; and agribusiness.

The Youth Jobs PaTH Industry Pilots 2020–2021 will:

  • test if and how industry-led approaches can increase employer take up and more effective use of employment services, particularly the Australian Government’s Youth Jobs PaTH program
  • align pre-employment pathways with the needs of employers with significant workforce demand, and in growing industries
  • inform the development of future employment services, including the design of future pre-employment and work experience programs.
  • Industry Pilots will commence January 2020 – 30 June 2021.
  • Young job seekers from jobactive, Transition to Work, NEST regions and Disability Employment Services are eligible to participate in the Industry Pilots.
  • $10 million was available for up to 10 Industry Pilots
