Youth Attainment and Transitions and National Partnerships
Reference: DEEWR Youth Attainment and Transitions Web Site http://www.deewr.gov.au/Youth/YouthAttainmentandTransitions/Pages/Home.aspx

At its 30 April 2009 meeting, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed to a Compact with Young Australians to increase young people's engagement with education and training pathways.

The Compact with Young Australians comprises a National Youth Participation Requirement, an entitlement to education or training places for 15 to 24 year olds, and changes to Youth Allowance and Family Tax Benefit making education and training a precondition for these payments.

COAG also agreed to bring forward its attainment target so that by 2015, 90 per cent of 20-24 year olds will have attained Year 12 or equivalent or Certificate II or above.

The Compact with Young Australians will be the foundation of a new National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transitions that will also drive longer term reform to ensure that young people stay engaged in education and training and attain a year 12 or equivalent qualification.

National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transitions
The National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transitions will pursue long term reform of schooling through collaborative efforts with the states and territories, to improve educational outcomes. The National Partnership on Youth Attainment and Transitions is now available on the COAG website. Under the National Partnership, the Australian Government will continue funding of $623 million to consolidate its youth and transition programs with new and better targeted programs.
