(Hospitality Employment and Training) is a practical youth re-engagement
program delivered from the SKYS Learning Centre in South Melbourne.
It is an innovative and practical program that assists young
people in developing self-esteem: gaining accredited training
qualifications in the hospitality industry, work experience in
local businesses and prepares them for the world of work.
HEAT operates in an informal learning environment and is designed to dramatically improve the lives of many young people who are disengaged from mainstream education. HEAT achieves this through supporting young people to make a positive transition to secure employment, thus avoiding the negative traps of long term unemployment.
The Project’s Structure, Aims, Methods & Strategies
The program places a strong emphasis on welfare and career guidance, as we realise that for many in our target group, becoming job ready requires much more than just acquiring work-related skills. All young people will participant in pathways planning and have their progress towards education, employment and independence goals monitored.
