New program to help young people enter workforce

MORE support will soon be available for young people who are not in employment or education on the North Coast through the delivery of a new program - Transition to Work.

Funded by the Department of Employment and delivered by Enterprise and Training Company (ETC), Transition to Work is designed to help young people aged 15-21 either return to school, engage in further study or training or gain employment.

ETC's CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was thrilled to have secured the Transition to Work (TtW) contract on the North Coast.

"It is fantastic to be recognised as a high-performing community-based organisation who is capable of providing this service and we look forward to making real in-roads with young people who are neither studying nor working in the region," Mrs Barnett said.

"We are really excited to be able to expand our current employment and training services and will be delivering Transition to Work in Lismore, Grafton, Ballina, Casino, Murwillumbah and Byron Bay."

ETC will commence delivery of Transition to Work from March 14.
