Closing Date/Time

The Support for VET Students project will take a location based, early intervention approach to reduce the barriers to educational engagement for at-risk VET students by the provision of a coordinated and individualised suite of support services. The focus of the project will be around a caseworker who considers the individual needs of the participant, establishes and maintains strong relationships early on and throughout their study, and then connects students to relevant existing support services. The complex needs of this cohort require an early and individualised intervention in order to prevent their disengagement from study which in turn increases their future employability.

This project will address the fragmentation of current services that are available to at-risk VET students. The project will meet an identified need for individualised support that considers the spectrum of need for the student and then better connects them to available services.

The project will be aimed at young people aged 17-24 years old and who are currently enrolled in VET study but are at risk of disengaging from their education. These young people are also to be in or have been in receipt of Youth Allowance (student) or ABSTUDY.
