Constituency Question: Youth Employment

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (12:41:45) — (14 168) My constituency question is to the Minister for Industry and Employment. What information can the minister provide about access to employment for young people in the Yuroke electorate? Recently the Yuroke Youth Advisory Council held their first meeting for 2018. Every year that council chooses a topic to focus their attention on, and this year they will focus on youth employment. Employment is a top priority for people of all ages in the Yuroke electorate, and members of the advisory council are keen to learn everything from resume writing skills in order to secure their first part-time job to choosing a long-term career path. It would be helpful to the work of the council if the minister could please provide information on initiatives or support that is available to ensure that young Victorians can secure employment, and I look forward to hearing from him.
