Youth Jobs PaTH

A flexible new approach to youth employment. It is designed to support young people to gain the skills and work experience they need to get and keep a job.

Youth Jobs PaTH has three elements: Prepare - Trial - Hire.

Prepare 

  • If you're a jobseeker aged 15 - 24 you may want to consider discussing Employability Skills Training (EST) with BEST Employment.
  • EST is an opportunity to improve your chances of getting a job
  • It can help you identify and improve the employability skills that employers require and develop your interview and application skills to help you land that job
  • EST can also provide you with opportunities to experience different career paths that match your interests

Trial

  • Voluntary internship opportunities to help you gain real work experience in local business by taking part in an internship placement for between 4 and 12 weeks.
  • An internship is an opportunity to show an employer what you can do and how you fit into their business.
  • Internships are unpaid by the business, instead you will receive an extra $200 a fortnight on top of your income support payment.
  • BEST Employment will provide support to you and the host throughout the internship.

Hire

  • If it's the right fit for both you and the host you could land yourself a job
