At Schools Industry Partnership (SIP) we believe that every young person has a gift or talent inside them.
We work with young people to help them discover their career passion and how to transform their skills leading to real jobs.
SIP is a not-for-profit incorporated association based in Western Sydney governed by a volunteer board representing key stakeholders and partners in our mission, from school systems, TAFE, local government, chambers of commerce and employers within the community. The express purpose of our organisation is to support education and career pathways.
Established in 1995, SIP has been involved in a variety of different services and programs under various funding arrangements. Some of these ventures include Work Inspiration, the Bright Futures campaign, and Career Advice Australia.
SIP is a provider of the Work Placement program, the Transition to Work service, the Smart Skilled & Hired Youth Employment Program and runs the campaign Inspiring the Future. Since its inception SIP has successfully coordinated the Work Placement program, proudly placing over 50,000 students, as well as directly helping hundreds of young people into employment. SIP is also providing the Australian Government’s Transition to Work service, which exists to enable, educate and equip young people in their journey to employment.
