Urban Youth Employment Project
The Pre- employment training funded by Australian Government in
partnership with National Capital District Commission, Urban Youth
Employment Program (UYEP) and IEA College of TAFE graduated 350
trainees last week,
The trainees are mostly school leavers and unemployed youths
between the ages of 16-35 were given the second chance to improve
their employability skills throughout training.
World Bank’s task team leader for UYEP in PNG Ingo Wiederhofer told
the trainees that it is not easy and therefore, it is an opportunity for
them to keep learning and to make good choices in life.
“Life is not easy and not always going to be fine,” he said. “What is
important is that you try your best as you can, learn and try to make
choices”. Wielderhofer told them that, training is helpful and will help
them, their families and the society as a whole. The training that you
have taken will increase your chances, success and achievements.
