Providing disadvantaged young people with the motivation to seek employment
April 17th, 2018

Program: Career Edge

Skilling Australia Foundation is one of our seven successful 2017/ 2018 Ansvar Community Education Program grant recipients. They will use the CEP grant money to recruit 30 disadvantaged, unemployed young people. The young people will undertake three weeks pre-employment training and work placement leading to a qualification in an area identified by the Federal Governments’ as an area of skills shortage in QLD. On completion of training they will be able to complete an apprenticeship with a host employer.

The funding will allow materials and administration to be compiled to recruit the 30 young people, along with covering costs of the training in partnership with RTO/TAFE.

Key Objectives:

-To recruit 30 disadvantaged young people meeting the target audience criteria
-To provide a pre-employment job readiness training and placement program
-To support program participants to gain an apprenticeship
-Successful transition into work through the provision of mentoring services
-For young people to transition into a meaningful career.

Expected outcomes from the program

The Career Edge program aims to provide disadvantaged young people with the motivation to seek employment, along with a positive attitude towards work. Through the program they will have an understanding of potential career pathways and apprenticeships. Participants will complete pre-employment training with a high percentage commencing an apprenticeship.

We had such a great day at last weeks 'Reach Beyond Golf Day' that raises funds for a medical clinic in Bangladesh for the Rohingya refugees. Thank you to all the organisers for putting on such a great day and also for the passionate presentation to explain the amazing work that's been done with the funds raised.

We had to share these wonderful words from the Lighthouse Foundation's Michelle Michie, Philanthropy Manager. The Lighthouse Foundation were one of our 2016/ 2017 Community Education Program Grant Recipients.....

“We are immensely grateful for this support which has been crucial in life changing work which has helped so many young homeless girls get off to a healthy start with their newborns. I wish you could experience what I do, when I see these girls graduate to independent living with a strong attachment to their child. Without this help, so many of them would not have been able to manage, and would have given up their baby into the state care system.

Thank you for the partnership, and the tangible feeling that the Ansvar team truly cared about homeless children and young people, and that you had their back.”
