The Reconnect Program is part of the Victorian Government’s Back to Work scheme. The Scheme is designed to help get young unemployed people, retrenched workers, out-of-trade apprentices and people looking for work longer than 12 months back to work. Details of the Back to Work initiative can be accessed at: www.vic.gov.au/backtowork/.
Vulnerable young people who leave school early often face multiple barriers in remaining in training and transitioning to the workforce or further training, and are at risk of remaining disengaged unless they can access targeted services that successfully support them back into education, training or employment.
Reconnect seeks to reverse this trend through targeted interventions that will re-connect young people with education and the workplace and support them on a pathway to training and employment.
