Transition to Work
About the Transition to Work Service
YouthWorX NT is funded by the Australian Government to provide the Transition to Work (TtW) Service in Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston. The service provides vocational guidance and a range of skills and capabilities building activities to young people aged between 15 to 21 years who live in the service areas. It also offers a range of real world opportunities such as work tasters, work experience and mentoring in addition to making connections between young people and organisations in the community who can help them to achieve their goals.
Who is it for
TtW is for young people aged between 15 to 21 years old residing in the Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston areas. This service provides intensive pre-employment support to improve work readiness and to guide you into meaningful work and/or further education.
Our qualified staff will spend time with you to:
- Develop a vision for your life – what is important to you and why
- Identify your talents and skills, including areas that you would like to develop further
- Connect with experts and people in the community who can help you with your goals (such as, employers, TAFE teachers, professionals, creative mentors, tutors and social networks)
- Participate in real world opportunities (such as work tasters, work experience, mentoring)
- Gain employment which is aligned with your goals and aspirations
How to get involved
TtW is a free service just for young people aged 15-21, especially for early school leavers. It aims to improve work ready skills, enable you to reach further study and help you secure stable employment. It’s also alternative to Jobactive that fulfills your Centrelink requirements.
Become part of a new service for talented young people who are striving to find work. The Transition to Work (TtW) service generates opportunities for young people aged 15 to 21 to build on their skills and talents, and engage in the world of work. We want to work with local employers to create solutions to their recruitment challenges, which will have the added benefit of reducing youth unemployment in our community.
Our TtW service provides young people with opportunities to develop personal, social and practical employability skills and to gain workplace experience. Ultimately participants will strive to achieve paid employment, whilst strengthening career networks for sustaining employment options into the future. Partnerships with employers, business leaders, government, education providers, service/sporting clubs and community networks are critical in assisting young people to engage and build the connections and networks necessary to become active community members.
