Youth Jobs PaTH

5 May

The Federal Government through Department of Employment, Youth Jobs PaTH are looking to assist businesses with trialling or hiring a young person. Employers can be eligible for assistance of up to $10,000.

 

Youth Jobs PaTH (Prepare-Trial-Hire) allows businesses to trial an eligible young person aged 17–24 in a work experience placement (called a PaTH internship) for between 4 and 12 weeks to find out if they are right for the role.

 

How can I access the program?

A jobactive, Disability Employment Services or Transition to Work provider will work with a business to help find a suitable young person to trial in an internship. Talk to a local provider about hosting an intern. You can find a list of providers in your area at https://jobsearch.gov.au/provider.
