Wide Bay youths will have new pathways into employment with Maryborough selected as one of 10 pilot sites in a $58 million national Industry Training Hub program, Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien announced today.
 
"Young people in Maryborough are set to benefit from the Morrison Government's plan to build better pathways between school, training and work to boost youth employment through the Hub," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"The recent Liberal and Nationals Budget committed $58 million to pilot ten Industry Training Hubs, and provide vocational education and training (VET) scholarships to help young people gain the skills they need to secure a job.
 
"I have secured major investments in timber, manufacturing and agriculture to create jobs in Maryborough and the Industry Training Hub will be another asset, funded by the Morrison Government, which boosts employment opportunities in the region," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"The Industry Training Hub will complement these investments and ensure that prospective employees have skills and qualifications that employers in the region seek.
 
"The new Hub will strengthen partnerships between local schools, employers and industries, and ensure that vocational education programs are tailored to meet local workforce needs and skills demands."
 
Young people, aged 15-24, in Maryborough will also be eligible to apply for a scholarship to undertake an eligible VET Approved Program of Study at the Certificate III to Advanced Diploma level.  Scholarships, valued at up to $17,500 each, will be made available in the 10 locations.
 
"Industry Training Hubs and the Commonwealth Scholarship Program will provide a pathway for young Australians, in regions with persistent youth unemployment, to gain the skills they need for a successful and rewarding career," Minister for Small and Family Business, Skills and Vocational Education Michaelia Cash said.
 
"Youth unemployment is a significant issue in our region and this initiative will help young people develop skills that are in high demand, to make a successful transition from school to training and work, and bring down the youth unemployment rate," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"The more opportunities we can provide young people in Maryborough and Wide Bay to develop skills relevant to the needs of local industry, the more likely they will be to secure ongoing employment."
