What are the benefits for job seekers?
Gain valuable experience
A Skill360 PaTH Pilot Program provides young job seekers with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a workplace and demonstrate their skills and abilities to a potential employer.
Find out about an industry and role
An internship is also an opportunity for a job seeker to test their own suitability for working in a particular role or industry. All internships are voluntary.
If it doesn’t work out you have gained some valuable work experience and are one step closer to getting a job more suited to your preferences.
What are the benefits for employers?
Trial before you hire
A Skill360 PaTH Pilot Program Internship enables a business to trial a potential employee for 30 to 50 hours per fortnight over four weeks. This provides a great opportunity for your business, to see if the trial employee is the right fit for the business.
No wage costs during the trial
During the trial, host businesses do not pay the young person a wage. The Australian Government gives them $200 a fortnight on top of their income support. Employers receive a payment of $1,000 (GST inclusive) to help cover the costs of hosting an intern.
Potential wage assistance should you decide to employ
Receive up to $10,000 in financial assistance for your new employee should you decide to then hire them after the trial.
