12.05.14Funding cuts to national scheme may lead to rise in youth unemployment, education groups warn


From ABC editorial

 

There are concerns youth in the country’s most disadvantaged areas will miss out on training opportunities, amid fears funding for a national scheme that connects employers and schools is about to run out.

The Partnership Brokers program was started in 2010 but only has funding through to the end of 2014.

More than 100 brokers around the country help young people at risk of joblessness into work, education, training and work experience.

Year 11 student Brenden Williamson got his apprenticeship through a training program run by Yamaha Motor in Sydney’s south west which was teed up by partnership broker South West Connect.

“It would have been near on impossible for me to do on my own,” he said.

The 16-year-old divides his time between school, TAFE and work.

“It’s my dream, my mates are all pretty jealous because they’re all working at fast-food outlets and I’m working in a motorbike shop,” he said.

“My future now looks pretty bright because I’m still going to have my HSC behind me when I finish year 12 and by the time I’m 20 I’m going to be a fully qualified motorbike mechanic,” he said.

His parents are pretty happy about it too.
