Tools for the Trade Programme

SalvoCare Eastern run an eight week trade orientated program, aimed to assist young people who are disengaged from main stream schooling and at risk of long term unemployment.

The program seeks to re-engage young people back into the education sector and/or assist them to secure apprenticeships. Throughout the program, young people are able to participate in "hands on Trade Tasters" that are organised in partnership with Chisholm TAFE and also are able to participate in work experience to give them an understanding of a work environment.

The program has a strong focus on helping young people to further develop their general life and social skills, this is achieved by numerous skills development sessions as well as mentoring days.

As most participants are early school leavers and have lost interest in school for a number of reasons, the program aims to be as hands on as possible to keep them interested. Many students that attend the program generally have identified learning difficulties or medical conditions that make mainstream schooling challenging for them.
