Get into Pilot Program

Over the past 10 years, The Prince’s Trust in the U.K. has supported 18,000 young people through the Get Into program, working with employers across a variety of sectors, including hospitality, retail, construction and logistics. Get Into supports young people to develop sector-specific and employability skills to get them into long-term employment. The Prince’s Trust Australia has partnered with Adelaide-based employment, training and youth services not-for-profit S.Y.C. to deliver the Get Into program across the country after a highly successful pilot program in early 2017.

Delivery of the first five pilot programs in Adelaide included: Get Into Childcare with Hassel Group and Nanny S.A.; two Get Into Retail programs with the Peregrine Corporation and On The Run retail outlets; Get Into Social Care with E.H.C.; and Get Into Traffic Management with Altus Traffic and Civil Train. The pilot program was delivered with support from a Prince’s Trust International with a secondment from The Prince’s Trust International, designed to ‘train the trainer’.

In total fifty-four young people completed training during the five individual programs, with thirty-four young people (63%) moving into employment, primarily with the training host employers. A further four young people have transitioned to additional training or education. The immediate outcomes were 63% for jobs and 70% for positive outcomes. All 11 participants of the world’s first ever Get Into Traffic Management program were offered employment.

Initial feedback indicates that the Get Into Program is already having a positive effect on the young people supported by SYC, with 100% of those who have completed a Get Into Program indicating improvement in their employability skills, including team work, communication and confidence, and 98% of participants would recommend the Get Into Program to others.
