School Leavers Employment Supports (SLES) is an NDIS program that helps participants move from school to work and are available in the final years of school and directly after leaving school.
We are providing a new, holistic approach that gets participants TRULY job ready. Our program provides opportunities of a 5 day working week including 3 days of SLES, 1 day of a nationally recognised qualification & 1 day of Life Skills (additional fees apply).
Every student is welcome to personalise what days they would like to attend. We are flexible to you & your lifestyle!
3 days: SLES
There is no better way to learn skills than being hands on. You will be out in the community trialing out all different fields and industries or a specific workplace you are drawn to! Not only will you be building skills, you will be creating a community network that will assist in finding your dream job.

No problem! Only want to complete the three SLES days? Absolutely! We will work alongside you to compliment your lifestyle.
We are a young, vibrant and fun local organisation that is community based and committed to youth services. By being smaller, we are able to give more to you, ensuring you are as supported as you need to be.
