Schools Industry Partnership (SIP) is a not-for-profit organisation that operates its services through the generosity of industry supporters, volunteers and government funding.

Work PlacementBright Future logo small

Our Work Placement program is funded by the NSW Government to support HSC students studying selected Industry Vocational Courses from schools based in Blacktown, Penrith, Blue Mountains and the Hawkesbury regions. This funding enables us to run our program across these areas, placing thousands of students into meaningful work placements throughout the year.

Transition to WorkPrint

The Transition to Work (TtW) service is an initiative of the Australian Government to support young people, aged 15-21 on their journey to employment. SIP is a TtW provider for the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury and Penrith regions. More information about our three locations can be found here.  SIP’s TtW service is based on a model developed by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and a community of practice of not-for-profit’s around Australia.
