School Leaver Employment Supports


<embedded content />

Are you in your final year at school or have you recently left school? Do you want to find employment that is meaningful to you? Would you like to explore your potential in a supportive and creative environment? 

At The Disability Trust, we believe that everyone has the capacity to reach their goals if they have the right supports and passionate people around to help facilitate their journey. That’s why we do things differently. 

Firstly, we work together with you and those around you who are keen to see you succeed. Through a Discovery process, we find out more about you. Drawing on your experiences and others within your community, we explore your strengths, interests, goals, and the best ways we can support you to reach them. 

Secondly, we use a strengths-based approach. We value the capacity, skills, knowledge and potential in you. We work with you, in collaboration with others, to help you paint a picture of your employment future, and develop a plan that will work towards that future. 

Thirdly, we are solutions focused. This means that we don’t ignore challenges you may face. By drawing on your strengths, we will work with you to tackle challenges confidently and effectively. Using this combination of approaches, you will take ownership of your outcomes and develop self-determination skills that you will continue to use into the future. 

We are proud of the service we offer and our dedicated, knowledgeable staff. We provide a safe, inclusive environment where you will be able to connect with your community, including other young adults on a similar journey. Many of the young people form friendships which continue long after they leave. 

We offer School Leaver Employment Supports across a large number of locations including Wollongong, Shellharbour, Nowra, Miranda, Oran Park, Campbelltown, Hunter, Mittagong, Goulburn, ACT, Eurobodalla, Snowy Monaro and Bega Valley. As a large service provider, you will also have the opportunity to link with our successful Disability Employment Service (DES) in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Mittagong, Goulburn, Bega, Cooma, and Batemans Bay.

If you would like a future that puts you in the driver’s seat and you are ready to hit your employment goals, contact us on 1300 347 224 or leave your details via contact us form below.
