How we help


We help you build the confidence and skills needed to embark on your exciting career once you leave school.


The first step to a career

It can be tough out there! Competition can be fierce, and so many employers seek workers with experience, yet many students have not even held a part-time job yet so that they can focus on their studies.

The Youth Partnership offers a range of services to prepare you for your career journey. Our services include work placement opportunities for VET students, mock interviews, industry tours, masterclass and job readiness workshops.

Our programs help students get ahead of the competition and build new confidence. You will use the skills gained to add to your resume, which all adds up to being a more favourable candidate when applying for jobs.

We’ve seen many students make such a positive impression that they’ve received job offers from their host employers!

Programs for students

Work placement

If you are undertaking a VET course at school or TAFE, you must complete two weeks of mandatory work placement. It’s an excellent opportunity for you to practice the skills you are learning at school in the workplace.

Mock interviews

Our mock interview program is designed to help you feel comfortable and confident, providing a considerable advantage in securing the best job. Our ‘Interview Assurance’ training program will prepare you through mock interviews that simulate a real-life experience.

Career industry tours

We arrange industry visits so you can gain an up-close look at real workplaces in your chosen industry. We have a vast network of trusted contacts across many sectors and locations to match you with your preference.

Our resources

We believe organisation is the key to success! We’ve created a resources page to help students feel prepared and confident before they begin their career journey.

Are you enrolled in a HSC VET course in NSW and undertaking a work placement?
The NSW Department of Education has created Go2workplacement to help you prepare for your placement.

Once you complete the go2workplacement you obtain your Work Placement Ready Certificate.

The Certificate lets your host employer know that you are prepared for your placement and have identified a set of skills and competencies to focus on during your placement.
