About Youth Transitions

Schools Industry Partnership now offers a broad youth employment service, under both the Transition to Work (TtW) service and Smart, Skilled & Hired service. The funding for these services are provided by the Federal and State Governments accordingly.

Young people, aged 15-24, are given one on one and small group support and training in order to build up their skills, confidence and work readiness. The service is free, and provides opportunities for skills development, education or training and helps young people find relevant work experience.

All Participants of the Transition to Work service are catered for by Schools Industry Partnership.

Youth Transitions is a free service just for young people aged 15-24, especially for early school leavers or HSC graduates. It aims to teach work ready skills, enable you to reach further study and help you secure stable employment. For those on benefits, it’s also an alternative to jobactive that fulfils your Centrelink requirements.


Many employers tell us they are looking for young people with a spring in their step, and spark in their eyes. At SIP we work with thousands of employers and understand that employers need young people who can quickly learn the ropes and make a dollar. That’s why we invest the time and energy to specifically train young people in skills like Employers Expectations and the Unwritten Rules of Work.

In fact, graduates of our program must pass ten units to ensure they are genuinely work ready and set for success.

When hosting a Youth Transitions participant for work experience or employing them in a paid position, our staff are there to provide ongoing support for both employers and young people in order to make it a smooth and positive experience for all concerned.

If you’re keen to have one of our young participants on board, contact us today.
