School leavers and students

Being prepared for the future is the best way to give a young person with disability more choice and control over their own future.

By helping young people whilst they are in school, we can help make sure that they have the right level of support to work towards achieving their goals.

Support for young people in the NDIS

The School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) is available for eligible year 12 students. If you have an NDIS plan and would like to join SLES, we can support you as you prepare to leave school and create a plan for your future.

Looking for Disability Employment Services

If you are leaving school and have a disability, you may be eligible for Disability Employment Services. These services can help you prepare for work by accessing support, access to training and help looking for potential jobs. Understanding how these services work before you leave school can help you prepare for the future.

Disability Assessments for schools in Victoria

Under the Program for Students with Disability, we deliver assessments for schools on behalf of the Victorian Department of Education. The assessments cover Intellectual Disabilities (ID) and Severe Language Disorder with Critical Education Needs (SLD-CEN). If you believe a student might be eligible for PSD, you can contact our team to discuss the referral process.
