About the program
The Educational Pathways Program is an innovative program designed to improve education and career outcomes for young people by introducing NSW public high schools students to a range of post-school training and employment pathways
The Educational Pathways Program was launched as a pilot in 24 schools in 2020. As a result of this successful pilot phase, the project has been expanded to cover an additional 121 high schools from Term 1 2022, and continues until 2023.
Features of the expanded Educational Pathways Program include:
- Fee-free apprenticeships and pre-traineeships, allowing students to ‘test-drive’ different vocational education and training courses;
- Specialist head teachers and teams to work with careers advisers to create more engaging opportunities and pathways for students; and
- Dedicated staff to promote awareness and engagement in school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, and offer tailored support and mentoring for students exploring these pathways.
