PaTH is 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. It also supports employers to host internship placements and provides you with incentives when you take on a young person. PaTH has three elements: Prepare – Trial – Hire.
Young people will be prepared for work through Employability Skills Training to help improve their chances of finding and keeping a job.
Employers can trial a young person in an internship for 4 – 12 weeks. All employers who host an internship will receive an upfront payment of $1000 and young people will receive a $200 fortnightly incentive payment on top of their income support.
Employers who hire an eligible young person can receive up to $10,000 to help contribute to the costs of hiring and training.
