New Customised Employment Workshops start in Jan!

Our latest Customised Employment intiative has really taken off – we’ve received lots of interest for different ways to get young people informed and ready for work. And we’re happy to help, with our new specialised Customised Employment Workshops! Here the details of this exciting new program.

Getting the right info

This exciting new workshop is designed for young people with disability, aged between 15 – 19, who are transitioning into work. As a school leaver, you may have a lot of questions and feel unprepared for your career in the workforce. You may not know what pathway to choose or know what’s involved in the job role.

There’s often a lot of information out there, but getting the right ones for you is another thing.

That’s where our Customised Employment Workshops come in. The program is designed to be highly interactive, fun, and motivational. But most importantly, it’s the first step towards your own employment journey! The sessions will support participants to discover their unique talents, skills, and passions, and link them to an employment pathway, micro business or volunteer role.

Over four activity-packed days, workshop participants will get the chance to:

  • Visit different workplaces and get hands-on experience
  • Hear from industry experts on different job roles
  • Develop an employment profile or resume
  • Engage in fun activities designed to build employment skills
  • Learn to use public transport
  • Gain insight from experienced career counsellors and employers
  • Connect to work experience and volunteering opportunities
