The National Careers Institute Partnership Grants program provides grants from $20,000 to $350,000 for up to 12 months to enhance partnerships with industry, employers and schools to deliver innovative career advisory products and services for people at all stages of their careers.

The objectives for round 4 of the program are to:

  • create greater awareness of career pathways and career information for young people not in education, employment or training
  • contribute to an evidence base for addressing the needs of young people who are disengaged from education, employment or training
  • enhance partnerships between employers, training providers, schools and community organisations that assist disengaged young people into further learning and work, including jobs in demand.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • enhanced career pathways that help young people reach their full career potential
  • increased understanding by young people of the skills sought by employers
  • stronger collaboration in the delivery of career guidance to young people
  • improved quality of career guidance to young people.
