Get the right start in life

School leavers and students

Being prepared can provide the right start to your future.

We provide support to parents and carers to offer students the best opportunities while they’re still in school. Providing school leavers the right level of support ensures your goals can be achieved.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) are available for eligible Year 12 students under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). If you require supported employment under the NDIS, we can support you as you prepare to leave school and create a plan for your future.

If you are leaving school and have a disability, you may be eligible for Disability Employment Services (DES). These services help you prepare for work by linking you with appropriate health support, training and potential jobs.
