In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bridging the Gap has streamlined its service delivery to accommodate the needs of our clients during these unprecedented times. We are currently delivering our services remotely via a combination of online training/webinars/teleconferencing and telephone appointments.
EST is Face-to-Face Delivery!
The transition has been a great success and the feedback from jobseekers is very positive.
“Provides purpose to my day while in self isolation and social distancing”
“Keeps my mind active when face to face interaction is limited”
“Delivers daily support and information on maintaining good mental health and wellbeing”
Bridging the Gap is delivering the EST courses in various locations. These courses are free for eligible jobseeksers between 15 and 24 years of age and are an approved activity. EST courses are part of the Department of Employment’s Youth PaTH initiative to help young people gain skills for employment. BTG is committed to working with the participants to find internships who take part in the course.
Block 1 of the EST program will equip young people with pre-employment skills and prepare them to meet the expectations of employers. Block 2 focuses on job preparation and will provide young people with advanced job hunting skills, career development, interview skills and the opportunity to participate in Industry Awareness Experiences. These experiences will provide young people with an insight into the tasks and duties of different industries. Participants can do one or both of the Courses.
The EST course is made up of two blocks and each training block runs for a three week period and classes are 9am to 4pm Monday to Thursday.
Participants must be referred through their jobactive provider.
