Youth Employability

YEP: Licence to Work is designed for all young people but is of particular benefit to those who are: 

• transitioning directly into the workforce from school or training 

• on vocational pathways: transitioning into training or trade apprenticeships

• not in education, employment, or training (NEETs)

YEP is also useful for individuals who are returning to the workforce.
