Preparing your teenager for the next stage of life as they enter adulthood can be daunting, but there are more options available to young people than ever before.
Each young person's pathway is different, which doesn’t always include heading to college or university. If your teenager is choosing an alternative path and you’re hoping to find the right resources and support to help them on that path, Mid Coast Connect can help.
We offer free workshops, events, and programs like our Career Connect Program. We can also connect young people to work placement and employment opportunities.
The Career Connect program is a career planning and work readiness program for young people, helping young people who have left school and looking for training or work. The program focuses on providing individual case management, support, and group activities through the Get Back in the Game Initiative.
Funded by the NSW Department of Education, the program supports school leavers by offering support for education, training, and employment. Assistance includes:

Our free career and work readiness workshops are the perfect way to give your teenager the confidence and skills to enter the workforce.
Our workshops help young people learn how to:
Practical skills for vocational careers aren’t typically taught in the classroom. This is where work placement comes in. HSC students can participate in work placement programs to develop specific career skills.
Those studying Vocational and Educational Training (VET) programs can gain hands-on experience to learn key practical skills for trade and vocational careers. HSC VET programs typically include a minimum of 70 hours of work placement to be completed over two years.
Mid Coast Connect has an extensive network of supportive employers willing to provide work placement opportunities in a wide range of industries.
