Our Advantaged Thinking approach ensures that all of our programs work with individuals to build on their existing skills and talents, strengthening employment and life skills to achieve their employment and learning goals.
Our Transition to Work Service (TtW) provides intensive pre-employment support to improve the work readiness of over 200 Darwin-based young people aged 15 to 24 and to guide them into meaningful work and/or further education. The service provides vocational guidance and a range of skills and capabilities building activities to participants. 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 other community stakeholders who can help them to achieve their goals.
The Transition to Work National Community of Practice is a national network of Transition to Work providers who are committed to working collaboratively – with the business sector, government, local communities and young people themselves – to find sustainable employment for young Australians experiencing disadvantage.
By partnering with local and national employers, business networks and industry peak bodies, we are able to give young people the opportunities, resources and networks they need to build the foundations for a sustainable livelihood.
CareerStart Pre-employment Programs in partnership with Charles Darwin University offer participants support during study and the opportunity to gain essential skills to increase their ability to commence and successfully complete an apprenticeship, traineeship and ultimately sustainable employment.
Our Career Launchpad service will provide one-on-one, specialised career coaching and vocational support for young people with disability in their transition from school and into the world of work. The service will provide a cohort of young people with the opportunity to engage in a well-established, specialised youth career service in the safe, supportive environment provided by YouthWorX NT.
