Transition to Work

Further Information: 

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.

Transition to Work is operating from 4 sites across the Great South Coast at Portland, Hamilton, Warrnambool and Colac

What our participants say about our program:

Before I joined Transition to Work I was…

“…Before I joined transition to work, I was just floating and completely lost, I had some ideas of where I wanted to go and who I wanted to be but I had absolutely no idea on how to get there. Or where to start. Or even where to find the support.”

And now

“…But now I've got a path. And a goal that I know I can reach. And a way to reach it. It's been rocky and kind of rollarcoaster-ish, but I've had someone in my corner, reminding me it's ok. Reminding me why I'm on this path in the first place, even when I forgot. Transition to work is amazing. If I didn't have it, I would undoubtedly still be struggling to figure it out.

Before I joined Transition to Work I was…

“…unfocused on what career I wanted and how to get there.”

And now

“…focused and have an idea on what type of career I want in the future. The Transition to Work Program has given me more confidence in myself.”
