K.Y.M.’s Reconnect Program

Skills First Reconnect Program aims to provide disengaged high needs learners with supports that will help reduce the barriers they face to participating and succeeding in training and the workforce.

Skills First Reconnect program participants are expected to be experiencing acute levels of need requiring intensive wrap around supports to assist them to engage with and succeed in education and training.

K.Y.M. (Victoria) Inc. will assess the learning and non-learning needs of Reconnect participants to develop a Learning and Support plan. We’ll support learners complete an accredited course and use work placements to increase employability – we’re focused on helping learners transition to further training or employment.

Funding for the Skills First Reconnect grant program is being provided by the Victorian Government, through the Department of Education and Training.

K.Y.M. (Victoria) Inc. is working in cooperation with other Registered Training Organisation’s to provide Reconnect participants with the supports they need to successfully participate in education, training and employment.
