Transition to Work (TTW)

Transition to Work is an Australian Government funded program to assist unemployed young jobseekers aged 15–21 onto a vocational pathway.

The Transition to Work service has a strong focus on practical intervention and work experience to build a young person’s skills, confidence and readiness to engage in employment. Young people will receive intensive, pre-employment support to improve their work readiness and to help them into work or education including apprenticeships or traineeships.

Employers will receive help from Transition to Work providers to recruit young employees who meet their business needs.

Transition to Work providers have experience working with disengaged and disadvantaged young people, and have strong links with employers, community services and schools within their local community. Transition to Work operates as a separate service from jobactive, Disability Employment Services and the Community Development Programme.
