Labor's 'Step into Skills' program to help young Aussies

The Rudd Labor Government has announced a new program to give young people the basic skills they need to set a path to decent and secure jobs.
Federal Labor has a positive plan to support new jobs as the economy experiences the end of the China resources investment boom, presenting significant challenges for Australia's future.
As part of this plan, Labor will provide $35 million over three years for a new Step into Skills program.

Delivered primarily through TAFE, the Step into Skills program will give more than 8,900 disadvantaged young people aged between 16 to 24 years better prospects of gaining employment by providing training in foundation skills.
The Step into Skills program will do more to support young people who have just left or are about to leave school, helping them to find work or undertake further training.
Step into Skills will include simulated work experience opportunities, language, literacy and numeracy, problem solving and communication training.
Labor's focus on skills and training will ensure the benefits of economic growth flow not only to disadvantaged young people but also contribute to improved productivity.

Step into Skills will be another step in Federal Labor’s investment in skills to support jobs for all Australians.
