The Youth X-Factor Project is a Northern Tasmania campaign responding to the major issue of youth unemployment. It will run for two months in The Examiner Newspaper and also on their website which will have useful information and links for young people.
The campaign will highlight why completing education, getting qualifications and developing employability skills are so important. They are the “X Factors” of how young people can best guard against joining unemployment queues.
Education, government and industry partners are proud to join The Examiner in this campaign, which will carry regular news items and features on what young people around the region are doing in education and employment.
The Youth X-Factor Project will also have valuable information on what education services are available, what employers are looking for when they recruit, and other assistance for young people to improve their employment prospects.
