Transition To Work
Transition to Work is a Government initiative that supports young people, aged 15 to 21 years of age, on their journey to employment. With a strong focus on practical intervention and work experience to build skills, confidence and readiness to engage in employment, Transition To Work is another way we work to help youth get career ready!

With a strong focus on practical intervention and work experience to build skills, confidence and readiness to engage in employment, Transition To Work is another way we work to help youth get career ready.

As a part of the Transition To Work (TTW) service:

Young People will receive intensive, pre-employment support to improve their work readiness and to help them into work or education, including apprenticeships or traineeships. 

Employers will receive help from TTW providers to recruit young employers who meet their business needs.

I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.
