NEW YOUTH PROGRAM AN OPPORTUNITY FOR TRAINING PROVIDERS

THE State Government is investing over $8 million to help young school leavers in country areas to take up training and find a sustainable job in the skilled workforce, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said today.

Mr Marshall said the Regional Vocation Education and Training (VET) Pathways program was an initiative to support our young people who were training to acquire new skills.

He said the initiative encouraged service providers to work with young people, aged 15 to 19 to make effective transitions into sustainable training and employment.

“Under the Regional VET Pathways initiative, 15 to 19 year olds will receive industry grounded career advice, as well as guidance and mentoring to prepare them to enter training or jobs,” Mr Marshall said.

“I encourage service providers in the Northern Tablelands, especially TAFE, to apply to help deliver this program and support our young people get into the workforce.”

Tenders are now open to deliver the Regional VET Pathway program in New England North West, and close on 30 November 2015.

“The NSW Government is helping young school leavers get the training and skills they need through the investment of $2.3 billion to create over 510,000 subsidised training places that will help them find a job,” Mr Marshall said.

“Now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity, the students of today that are engaging in vocational education and training will shape the regional workforce of the future.”
