Background

The Indigenous Youth Mobility Pathways Project (IYMP) is part of the Australian Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) funded through the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPM&C).

Career Employment Australia (CEA) is operating the Indigenous Youth Mobility Pathways Project (IYMP) and operates the project in 7 locations across Australia.

What is IYMP?

  • The project offers young Indigenous people from regional and remote communities the opportunity to move to a host location to participate in further education, training or Australian Apprenticeships.
  • These young people actively participate in gaining a qualification which will enable them to develop the skills they need to get a job in their community or elsewhere.
  • IYMP addresses the barriers to training, employment and education and provides holistic support to young Indigenous people whilst engaged in the project.
  • It is an innovative project designed to inspire, excite, educate and encourage the young people’s passion to achieve and attain their long term career goals.

IYMP Objectives

  • Improve access to training and employment opportunities in major centres.
  • Increase the number of young Indigenous people participating in accredited training.
  • Increase the number of Indigenous people employed in occupations in particular areas of community need (e.g. trades, nursing, accountancy, business management and teaching).
  • Support the economic development in remote communities by building the capacity of local Indigenous youth to take up skilled jobs in their communities.
