Links to Victorian Government funded employment and workforce programs:
- Regional Jobs Package
Offers direct employment placements in industries that have existing and emerging skills shortages. Aged Care is identified as an area with skill shortages. This package is for disadvantaged job seekers, including young people, the long term unemployed, migrants and job seekers in regional communities.
- Workforce Participation Programs
Victoriaworks is a range of workforce participation programs designed to help Victorians who face challenges in accessing employment. The programs fund approved organisations which connect people to employment and training. Most Victoriaworks programs contain a number of rounds of funding; interested potential partner organisations should check back regularly.
- Local Learning and Employment Networks (LLENs)
Brings together education providers, industry, community organisations, individual and government organisations to improve education, training and employment outcomes for young people in Victoria. Your local Learning and Employment Network may be a good place to source young workers.
