Victorian Government Traineeships | Youth Employment Scheme | Youth Central

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.
