Get Set for Work aims to provide young people aged 15-19 years with nationally recognised training, combined with integrated learning support measures and foundation skills, that will enable them to successfully transition to employment and/or further education and training.
Get Set for Work is not a general education program. It maintains a clear focus on the attainment of nationally recognised qualifications in demand by local employers.
Get Set for Work has a project-based delivery model and funds local organisations to deliver customised training opportunities which include:
Nationally recognised training to gain qualifications (including foundation skills) up to Certificate III-level and delivered in a community-based setting
Integrated learner support including career advice, job preparation skills and case management to accompany the delivery of training within a community-based setting
Get Set for Work will fund the tailored support that must accompany the delivery of training and the student co-contribution fees. Training and assessment services under Get Set for Work are funded under the Certificate III Guarantee.
Get Set for Work primarily targets young Queensland residents aged 15-19 years who either:
are ineligible for Australian Government employment services or assistance, or
require complementary services because they have significant barriers to learning and employment, or
have accessed Australian Government services for more than six months and remain unemployed
Priority will be given to young people who have already left school or are at risk of disengaging from school.
