Youth

For: 
The Department of Employment delivers programs and services to support young Australians and help them to move from welfare to work.

Youth Employment Package

The Youth Employment Package announced in the 2016-2017 Budget aims to give young job seekers the employability skills and real work experience they need to get a job. The main features of the package include:

Youth Jobs PaTH

The Youth Jobs PaTH helps young people gain the employability skills and real work experience they need to get and keep a job. PaTH is a key part of the $840 million Youth Employment Package announced in the 2016-17 Budget. PaTH provides three elements designed to prepare young job seekers for the workplace and encourage Australian businesses to hire them:
Prepare – Trial – Hire

Encouraging Entrepreneurship and Self-Employment

The Encouraging Entrepreneurship and Self-Employment initiative will support young Australians who wish to start their own business. The initiative  includes four key measures:
Entrepreneurship Facilitators - SelfStart Online Hub - Enhancements to the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme - 'Exploring Being My Own Boss' Workshops

Youth Employment Strategy

The Youth Employment Strategy announced in the 2015–16 Budget is a $331 million commitment to help young people at increased risk of long-term unemployment get into work and move off welfare.

Transition to Work

The Transition to Work service provides intensive, pre-employment support to improve the work-readiness of young people and help them into work or return to education. The service has a strong focus on helping young people to understand more about the workplace and to develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours expected by employers.

Empowering YOUth Initiatives

Empowering YOUth Initiatives support new, innovative approaches from not-for-profit and non-government organisations to help young people who are already, or at risk of becoming, long-term unemployed overcome the barriers they face and move into work.

ParentsNext

ParentsNext assists parents of young children to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age. It provides tailored assistance to meet a parent’s individual needs and supports them on their path to achieving education and employment goals.

Engaging Early School Leavers

The Engaging Early School leavers initiative strengthens the chances of early school leavers finding and keeping a job. It supports early school leavers who are not on track to further education look for work and find training opportunities.
