Key fields within the health and community services sector include residential and in-home aged care, disability services, community services and primary and allied health.

Y-Train

Eurobodalla Council’s successful youth employment training scheme will be expanded to businesses shire-wide under a new initiative aiming to tackle youth unemployment.

Branded as ‘Y-Train’, the program will help Eurobodalla businesses employ young people as trainees or apprentices and support them through the process. There are already great financial incentives for local businesses to employ young apprentices and trainees, and Y-Train further sweetens the deal.

Y-Train will be modelled after Council's successful trainee and apprentice program. Local businesses will be supported to recruit new staff, organise registered training providers and prepare existing staff to supervise a young employee.  Businesses can employ trainees and apprentices under the age of 21 and in just about any field under the program, from construction and health and community services to retail, hospitality and tourism.

Businesses have until the end of July to sign up for this free support program. It is expected employment applications will open in early September. For more information, contact Council’s employment and training project coordinator, Rhonnie South:
