Two sites in Northam chosen as preferred applicants in Local Community Partnerships Networks
Posted on Tuesday, 6 December 2005
Two groups in Northam have been chosen as preferred applicants for new, expanded Local Community Partnerships (LCP) Networks.
The Central Area Region Training Scheme Inc and the Hotham Pallinup Lakes LCP, both at Northam are two of five preferred sites benefiting the Pearce electorate. The total estimated funding in 2006 for the providers is $248,710 and $112,616 respectively.
The services will cover the electorates of O’Connor and Pearce.
The Local Community Partnerships scheme is part of the Australian Network of Industry Careers Advisers (ANICA) initiative, announced in September last year. The ANICA program aims to increase support available to young people to achieve a smooth transition through school and from school to further education, training and work.
Member for Pearce Judi Moylan said: “The program is aimed at 13-19 year-olds. Our children are our future and it’s vital that we equip them with the necessary skills and training to succeed in life.”
“Contract negotiations still need to be finalised with the preferred organisations.”
Federal Government funding of $42 million annually will support the new network to facilitate Structured Workplace Learning, the new Career and Transition Support Program and the Adopt a School Program.
The other three new preferred LCPs which cover Pearce include the Swan Alliance Inc in Beechboro, SWVETlink in Busselton and the Balga Job Link Inc at Joondalup.
