The Indigenous Youth Employment Program is designed to support students into viable career pathways.  Students may participate in part-time work while they’re still at school, undertake a School-based Traineeship during Year 11 and 12, or commence a post-school Apprenticeship or Traineeship when they finish Year 12. 

School-based Traineeships include:

  • 1 day a week paid employment at a traineeship wage
  • 1 day a week TAFE (or other training provider) in a Certificate Level course appropriate to      your work place
  • Continuing engagement in school to gain a High School Certificate


What CONNECT will do to support you:


  • Provide work-readiness workshops and support to prepare you for work
  • Identify part-time employment, Traineeship or Apprenticeship opportunities with a local        employer
  • Support you to balance work, TAFE, and keeping up with school assignments (for part-            time employment or School-based Traineeships)
  • Support you to adjust to full-time work if you commence a post-school Traineeship or            Apprenticeship
  • Provide ongoing mentoring to address any issues which may create obstacles for your          successful engagement with employment and training
