Employability Skills Training Program

EST Training

As part of the Youth Jobs PaTH initiative, Skill Hire delivers Employability Skills Training program. 

The Australian Government’s Youth Jobs PaTH employability training programs have been designed to support young people aged under 25 years into jobs. Youth Jobs PaTH covers three elements – Prepare, Trial and Hire.

PREPARE with Employability Skills Training

Employability training programs help young people understand the expectations of employers in the recruitment process and in the workplace. Employability Skills training is made up of two training courses with different content focuses:

  • BLOCK ONE : Training Block 1 courses are designed to equip participants with pre-employment skills and prepare them to meet the expectations of employers. The content of these courses covers the 10 Core Skills for Work listed in the Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework (2013), while also covering a comprehensive induction to our industry-specific training in either Construction, Hospitality, Retail or Generalised training. Our team also works with businesses to deliver tailored training to suit their needs, ensuring the new employee is ready from day one.
  • BLOCK TWO: Training Block 2 courses focus on job preparation and are designed to equip participants with advanced job hunting, career development and interview skills. It also provides the opportunity to participate in Industry Awareness Experiences. These experiences will provide participants with an insight into the tasks and duties of different roles and industries.

 

TRIAL with PaTH internships

Voluntary internships of 4 to 12 weeks are provided to give young people the chance to demonstrate their skills in the workplace where there is a reasonable prospect of subsequent employment. The Youth Jobs PaTH internships is the component which helps businesses trial young people to see if they are the right fit, before they hire. This arrangement not only benefits the young people who gain valuable work experience and the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, but also businesses, in providing a flexible trial arrangement, to avoid the stresses of rehiring.

 

HIRE with Skill Hire

A new Youth Bonus wage subsidy of up to $10,000 is available to support the employment of young people. If the Youth PaTH internship shows a great fit between your business and the candidate trialed, our team can then assist you in bringing this candidate on board.

Participants and their jobactive provider receive an assessment of their Learning Outcomes following the completion of the Course, which they can use to promote themselves to businesses for PaTH Internships, other work experience opportunities or employment. Courses are delivered face-to-face in group settings for 25 hours a week for three weeks.

My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.
