More than 12,000 young people across Australia have secured 370,000 job placements through the Department of Employment Youth Jobs PaTH program this year.

Involving three stages - prepare, trial and hire - the program is designed to help young people on welfare prepare for work by completing Employability Skills Training.

Employers can trial a young person for four to 12 weeks through an internship. Businesses receive a payment of $1,000 to help with the costs of hosting the trial and an additional $10,000 if they hire an eligible young person between 15 and 24 years.
