Youth Employment Scheme

Share

The Youth Employment Scheme (YES) offers Victorians aged 15 to 24 paid work experience to develop skills and gain qualifications that can lead to ongoing employment.

Doing a YES traineeship lets you:

  • Get real experience in a real job
  • Learn valuable new skills
  • Meet inspiring mentors
  • Gain the confidence you need to get on a career path

There is a range of positions available across Victoria in a range of industries.

Who to contact for more information

For more information about YES, contact Bruce McAllion at jobsvictoria@ecodev.vic.gov.au.

Alternatively you can contact one of the group training organisations (GTOs) listed below to find out more or register for a traineeship.
