Press Release Ref: 1465 Published: 16/3/2005 Title: Young People in Batemans Bay Benefit from CAT

Today Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Gary Nairn, congratulated Campbell Page Employment and Training on their exceptional work in delivering the Australian Government’s innovative Career and Transition (CAT) Pilot in Batemans Bay.

“In light of their performance the Campbell Page Employment and Training contract has been extended until the end of 2005. They will continue to work closely with schools, parents, local community support agencies and employers to ensure that young people receive the most up to

date career information, and successfully make the transition through school, and from their schooling into further education, training or employment.”

“The Government is committed to increasing young people’s knowledge of the range of careers available to them. This financial year the Government has provided $2.9 million in funding for the CAT Pilot to be delivered in 20 regions nationally,” Mr Nairn said.

These 20 CAT projects are helping young people across Australia aged 13 to 19 years to find and achieve their potential through sound careers advice and guidance.

“I wish Campbell Page Employment and Training continued success in their valuable work, and thank them for their efforts in helping our local young people achieve their potential,” Mr Nairn said.
