What do you get?

Opportunities to recruit new staff.

Who is this for?

Businesses with entry level job opportunities willing to trial a new way of recruiting.


The Launch into Work program supports the delivery of pre-employment projects. These projects prepare eligible individuals for specific entry-level roles within a business. This means individuals don't require a degree or higher-level vocational qualification to start work.

The project is co-designed with the department and the hiring employer. A well-designed project gives individuals the skills, experience and confidence they need to start work. Projects include:

  • training
  • practical activities in the workplace
  • mentoring.

One of the program's aims is to create long-term secure employment for women, but projects are not only for women. Anyone aged 18 years or over can participate if they are in:

  • Workforce Australia┬áServices
  • Transition to Work
  • ParentsNext.

All Launch into Work projects must meet these requirements:
