Settlement Services Career Pathways Pilot is open until 17 November 2016 – 5:00pm AEST
The Community Grants Hub, on behalf of the Department of Social Services (DSS), is inviting providers via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Families and Communities Program – Settlement Services – Career Pathways Pilot from 2016-2017 to 2018-2019.
For refugee and humanitarian entrants, grants for settlement services build upon the foundation services provided by Humanitarian Settlement Services, by delivering settlement services that assist eligible participants to become fully-functioning members of society. As a consequence, the grants promote social cohesion and productive diversity within the Australian community.
The Commonwealth Government allocated funding in the 2016 Federal Budget for a Career Pathways Pilot for humanitarian entrants. The Pilot will provide targeted, early intervention assistance to help newly arrived humanitarian entrants who have skills and/or qualifications and vocational English language proficiency.
The Pilot will be implemented in six locations across Australia: Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Hobart and Toowoomba.
