16 Education and Training 2010-11 Budget Education and Training Alice Springs Youth Hub and Middle School A key aspect of the Governments Alice Springs Youth Action Plan is to support young people in and around Alice Springs to attend and stay at school. In 2010-11 this will include: $6.4M to upgrade Centralian Middle School and establish a Youth Hub at Anzac Hill; $0.95M for specialised education support, including: $0.7M to support an alternative education program at the Youth Hub for youth with extreme behaviours; $0.25M increasing to $0.5M in 2011-12 to deliver integrated support services in schools for at risk young people. All service providers, including police, family and community services, non-government organisations and schools will coordinate their activities to support the best possible outcomes for young people in Alice Springs. Training In 2010-11, the Territory Government will spend more than $97M to fund Vocational Education and Training. Specific initiatives in 2010-11 include: $4.7M to provide targeted training linked to identified jobs in remote communities; $2.87M as part of Jobs NT 2010-12, incorporating: $1.5M for public sector entry-level, apprenticeship and traineeship programs, including a sector-wide school-based apprenticeship program; and $1.37M to continue incentives to employ apprentices and trainees in skills shortage areas or persons from disadvantaged groups; $6M to upgrade the skills and qualifications of existing workers and job seekers in partnership with the Commonwealth. The 2010-11 Budget provides $886 million for the Department of Education and Training, including $623 million to deliver quality education outcomes through Territory Government schools, $152 million for non-government schools and $97 million for training.
