Transition to work

Transition to work

We help early school leavers and young people experiencing unemployment to gain the skills and confidence to transition into sustainable and meaningful employment.

Transition to Work enables life-changing opportunities for young people who are currently unemployed by developing the necessary skills and training alongside individualised support. Transition to Work helps young people understand an employer’s needs and develop the necessary skills, attitudes and behaviours that will help them secure and maintain employment.

This includes:

  • Developing practical skills to be job-ready
  • Understanding what employers want (and why)
  • Connecting with education or other training
  • Find and participate in work experience
  • Knowing where to look for local job opportunities
  • Connect with other relevant community services

We see you as an individual

Identifying an individual’s interests, strengths, and help build the self-confidence needed to break out of long term unemployment helps our Transition to Work team support a young person into a job. We focus on building vocational and non-vocational skills such as expression, creativity and self-worth.

Our connected services

By registering with Transition to Work each young person will have access to other services including accredited vocational training and education with Melbourne Training Options. Additional support for mental health, alcohol, and other drugs and other complex issues are also available to ensure you receive the most effective support based on your needs.
