This Week’s Highlight: Improving Youth Employment

blog image 19_08_19 v2

This week we look at two new opportunities issued by the Department of Jobs and Small Business that are aimed at improving youth employment opportunities.

The first opportunity is specific to the Northern Territory, where the Department is seeking a single provider to deliver a suite of services through the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN). The AASN is a government program that supports employers and apprentices during the term of an apprenticeship to make it easier for employers to recruit, train and retain apprentices. The service provider will be required to engage with employers and apprentices to deliver an end to end service of advice and support that minimises the administrative burden on employers and improves apprenticeship completion.

There are specified locations within the Northern Territory that a Service Provider must operate from and an appreciation of the demographics and indigenous cultural sensitivities will be vital. The anticipated contract term is two years commencing 1 February 2020. An information session is being held on 27 Aug 19 in Darwin, and the Request for Tender (RFT) closes 20 Sep 19.

The second opportunity is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from entities interested in designing and delivering industry pilots, under the Youth Jobs PaTH Industry Pilot program, that help young people gain the skills and experience they need to find sustainable work. The Australian Government has made available $10 million to help industry organisations develop pathways for young people to gain work experience and employment as a response to calls from Industry. The industry pilots will test the effectiveness and benefits of industry-led pre-employment pathways designed to fast track young people into work. Industry pilot providers will have direct access to work experience and job opportunities for young people and deliver pre-employment pathways tailored to the needs of suitable employers within the industry pilot timeframe.

Industry pilots must be delivered in Australia and can be delivered nationally, in one or more states or in a single location. Entities such as industry groups, business peak bodies, employers and group training organisations are strongly encouraged to respond. This EOI closes 4 Sep 19 and is the first stage of a two stage process. Respondents must be successfully shortlisted in the EOI stage to be invited to tender in the second RFT stage.
