Career & Transitions

VPG Career and Transition activities provide an opportunity for young people to increase their knowledge of self and the world of work, ensuring they are able to make informed decisions about their future.

VPG works with local secondary schools, community organisations and Job Active providers to deliver a range of career and transition courses for young people requiring assistance to engage in school, training or employment. VPGs flexible approach to delivery means that programs can be adapted to suit the needs of organisations and youth, from1hr courses at schools to 2 week courses at VPG available.

VPG is recognized and certified by the Queensland Studies Authority to deliver our Ready Set Work program for young people aged 15 – 24. This employability skills development course is an opportunity for young people to prepare for the world of work whilst gaining 2 points towards their QLD Certificate of Education.
