We know the Bundaberg region has had one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the country for some time, and the rate of disengaged job seekers is a serious issue. In June 2020 national youth unemployment hit a 23-year high of 16.4 per cent. So how can we tackle this issue?

Transition to Work is an initiative by the Australian Government designed to help and support young people who are early school leavers and those who have had difficulty entering employment after school. Transition to Work also aims to give young people pre-employment support so that they feel confident before they enter the workforce. Support includes providing tailored career advice, preparing a resume and developing job search techniques.
