TAFE NSW Youth Engagement Strategy PLUS (YES+)
TAFE NSW’s Youth Engagement Strategy PLUS (the YES+ program) helps students identify potential career pathways, through taster courses in several different industries and experience learning in simulated industry environments at TAFE NSW.
Students will develop individual learning plans, engage in vocational taster courses and receive ongoing mentoring, counselling and career advice. The program gets students out of the school setting and into TAFE-style learning, including visits to real workplaces.
Every student enrolled in the YES+ program completes a TAFE NSW Statement in Youth Engagement. There is also plenty of support on offer in the form of TAFE NSW support services like career counselling and mentoring, and special EPPP local customisation funding to help with items such as boots or overalls, transport or literacy and numeracy support.
