In partnership with SYC and The Prince’s Trust International, P.C.A is pleased to announce the beginning of exciting new partnership to pilot the employability program for young people, Get Into, in Adelaide, South Australia.
The Get Into Programme is designed to help young people who are unemployed to develop sector-specific employability skills, vocational skills and real world work experience to ultimately get them into jobs.
In order to deliver the pilot, Prince’s Trust International has seconded Project Manager Maddy Kavanagh who arrived in Adelaide from the UK in mid-January 2017 and is pleased to be expanding the program further internationally.
“Prince’s Trust has supported over 18,000 young people through the Get Into program over the last 10 years, it is fantastic to be bringing the program to young people in Australia” she said.
SYC Chief Executive Officer, Paul Edginton said the partnership will provide great value not only to the young people involved, but to the employers, staff and the community too.
“Piloting the Prince’s Trust Get Into Programme in Adelaide will provide an invaluable learning opportunity for both SYC and Prince’s Trust to gain an insight into how one another tackle the issue of youth unemployment,” he said.
SYC is currently engaging with employers across a range of industry sectors training programs giving entry-level work skills to young people seeking to gain employment. Participating employers are committing to a pre-determined number of training places and job opportunities, coupled with guaranteed job interviews for all trainees involved.
The Australian Get Into Pilot Programme is funded through the support of The Prince’s Charities Australia, Prince’s Trust International, and SYC. The pilot is aiming to achieve 50 training completions and 25 job outcomes over the course of the pilot
