Employability Skills Training
We are an approved Employability Skills Training (EST) provider under the Australian Government’s PaTH program.
The program gives young people aged between 15 and 24 years an opportunity to move into paid employment through three key initiatives:
Prepare – valuable workplace skills
Trial – work experience opportunities with a host employer
Hire – paid employment
About the program
Under Prepare, we deliver two blocks of Employment Skills Training; either full-time - 25 hours a week for three weeks, or part-time -15 hours a week for five weeks.
Block one covers meeting expectations of employers in the workplace.
Block two covers industry awareness and advanced job search skills.
If you are registered with a provider that isn't MAX, then you can complete your Employability Skills Training (EST) with us. Under the guidelines for PaTH, we refer MAX Employment job seekers who want to complete the EST to another local PaTH training provider.
