Employability Skills Training

Employability Skills Training (EST) helps participants become job-ready by providing intensive pre-employment training in a variety of industries.

EST gives you the opportunity to enhance your work readiness through two different blocks of targeted training. Participating in training will help you understand the expectations of employers in both the recruitment process and as a new employee in the workplace.


Depending on your situation there are two types of EST courses available, each designed to build upon differing skill sets, both which will help improve your chances at getting a job. You can do one or both of the courses. Each block is 75 hours of face-to-face training over three weeks.


EST is available to young people (aged 15-24) in jobactive as part of the Youth Jobs PaTH program.
