Information on the Job Ready Journal, including requirements and process, are detailed in the Job Ready Program Applicant Guidelines.
You will be required to write an online Job Ready Journal for each month you participate in Job Ready Employment. Your Journal can be accessed under the Job Ready Employment/My Journal link via the online portal once your application and employment details have been registered with TRA.
A range of sample Journals can be accessed below to help you complete your journals. If your occupation is not listed, please send an email to jrpenquiries [at] education.gov.au requesting a sample journal for your occupation.
Every three months (quarter) you will receive an automated email advising that your Quarter Journal Report has been locked. This means you are no longer able to enter Journals online for that quarter.
If your Quarter Journal Report locks before you have completed all the required monthly Journals, you will need to complete a manual journal for each missing month. A Manual Journal Entry Form will need to be completed electronically, printed and attached to your Quarter Journal Report so your supervisor can verify the content. Hand written journals will not be accepted. You can access a Manual Journal Entry Form below.
