We transform education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Through our program, adults of all ages—whether unemployed, underemployed, or needing to learn new skills—can connect to the training, support, and jobs to change their path.
We solve a wide range of employer challenges—skilled talent shortages, lackluster on-the-job performance, reskilling needs, and higher turnover in important roles—with our unique approach and our determined graduates.
What We Do
Generation Australia uses 3 impact models to place people into jobs at scale, while influencing the system change that will ultimately improve employment outcomes across Australia.
1. Delivered by Generation
We directly deliver education-to-employment programs that support people facing barriers to employment. Our programs are demand-led and provide a holistic learning experience and extensive wraparound support to participants. We currently deliver programs training people for roles in the technology and healthcare (human services) sectors.
2. Powered by Generation
We conduct transformational activities with education organisations across Australia to help them develop programs that utilise all key areas of Generation methodology.
3. Influenced by Generation
We work with government, policy-makers, and organisations as thought-leaders on the future of employment.
Go further, together.We are better together. We collaborate with and help others, both inside and outside of Generation.
Solve problems that matter.We work on activities that do the most to advance our mission, and rigorously measure our impact to guide where we spend our time and resources.
Better our best.We will never be perfect, and we always have more to learn. As long as we use data, experience, and dialogue to grow and improve, we are moving in the right direction.
Empower & support.We know that people do their best when treated with kindness and respect. We support and develop each other personally and professionally, allowing our unique talents and capabilities to flourish.
Here to serve.We commit to enabling the learning and growth of our participants, and to providing great talent for our employer partners. One alone is not enough, our success depends on serving both groups.
Be open & transparent.We believe in honest sharing. We welcome diverse perspectives, opinions, and ideas.
How do we prepare people for a career?
Generation prepares adults of all ages for jobs in four sectors. Our approach has seven components.
- 1 Jobs and employer engagement from the start.
- 2 Learner recruitment based on intrinsics, effort, and employment standards for the profession.
- 3 4-12 weeks of technical, behavioral, mindset & professional presence skill training, with social support services provided.
- 4 Interviews with employer partners for immediate job placement.
- 5 Mentorship during and after the program and an alumni community that follows graduates into the workplace.
- 6 Return on investment for employers, students, and society.
- 7 A data-centered approach at every step.
