- Specialist Enhanced Services Providers may be licensed in some locations to deliver Enhanced Services to vulnerable job seeker cohorts
- EST will provide intensive pre-employment training that is tailored to industries in the local labour market to enhance job readiness. Organisations delivering EST will also arrange work trials with a genuine prospect of employment.

The RFP sets out the service requirements for each of the services, information on how to respond, the selection criteria and the evaluation process.
