School Leaver Employment Supports


Our program is designed for school leavers who are keen to up-skill and become work ready. We assist participants to attain the necessary skills, qualifications, experience and independence to achieve their vocational and life goals in a fun and supportive way.  

Each participant is empowered to make choices and decisions in planning goals and strategies through their individualised program. We understand that everyone is unique and that each person’s needs are varied and will change over time. Our programs focus on employment goals and other activities that are motivating, rewarding, and delivered in supportive and enjoyable contexts. 

We use a strengths based, solution focused approach that enables young people to build their resilience and take ownership over their progress and outcomes. Each participant is supported and trained by our highly experienced Employment Consultants focussed on helping participants reach their personal potential and successfully achieve and maintain rewarding employment.
