YOUTH in Whyalla and Port Augusta will soon be able to receive more help when it comes to getting work.
Workskil Australia has been nominated by the Australian Government to deliver a ‘Transition to Work’ service in the two towns from April.
More than $320 million has been comitted to the service over four years, which aims to provide people aged 15 to 21 with support to get into work or back into education.
Workskil Australia Chief Executive Officer Nicole Dwyer said the organisation was proud to be able to help young people.
“As a community, we always look to our youth for the future, but our young people also need support in meeting the challenges that lay before them,” Ms Dwyer said.
“We know from our experience assisting youth that that there is a strong appetite to contribute to the community; the Transition to Work programme is an important initiative to help equip potential young job seekers with the skills they need, and in doing so, open doors to employment.”
Providers such as Workskil deliver a range of tailored individual, group or self-directed activities at part of the Transition to Work Program.
