Employability Skills Training (PaTH)

Employability Skills Training (EST) is part of the Government’s Youth Jobs PaTH initiative (Prepare – Trial – Hire)

Stirling Skills Training provide EST training that is aimed at giving Job Seekers aged 15 to 24 a broad grounding in a variety of industries and work-related behaviours.

We empower Job Seekers to make meaningful decisions about their careers and don’t lock them into pathways they don’t want to pursue.

Individualised Career Action Plans

We work with Job Seekers to identify their goals and then help meet them by designing an individualised Career Action Plan.

The individualised career plan will also help to organise internships in the industry they are interested in, giving valuable experience and a foot in the door.

Industry Awareness Experiences

Stirling Skills Training organises Industry Awareness Experiences to help Job Seekers learn more about the industry they want to work in.

These are run with our industry partners, and involve a mixture of practical placements and formal classroom presentations. We also go over what the chosen industry’s future needs will be, the specific skills they will require, and what training they can do to make the most of that information.
