The Australian Government has committed $10 million to 2019-20 to establish the Launch into Work pilot program. The program trials pre-employment projects that provide training, work experience and mentoring to support job seekers to increase their skills, experience and confidence. Projects are intended to train job seekers for specific roles within the organisation and may be conducted in a variety of industries.

Employers can utilise this program as a way of recruiting for positions that offer career pathways to job seekers. A pre-employment project is co-designed to suit both the employer and job seeker’s needs including relevant training, work experience, mentoring and employment for suitable job seekers who successfully complete the pre-employment project.

Launch into Work is primarily focused on creating long-term employment pathways for women. However, men may also be able to participate in the program, in particular for projects targeting non-traditional roles.
