It’s a lot to think about and BUSY Ability can help you explore your strengths, identify opportunities and develop the skills and confidence to reach your goals. If have left school recently and are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) BUSY Ability can assist you.
Funded under the NDIS, BUSY Ability’s School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) will prepare you to transition from school to work and achieve your goals. If your goal is employment; work skills; personal development; help with literacy and numeracy; budgeting; using transport and other life skills; through our SLES we can provide you with a range of supports to assist you to achieve your goals and become work-ready.
At BUSY Ability it’s all about you …..Your Goals, and Leading with Your Ability
SLES supports will be tailored to meet your individual employment goals. In general, you will receive SLES support for about 3 days per week, however, the actual days and hours of support received can vary and are agreed between you and your BUSY Ability Support Planner.
The choice of activities you participate in as part of SLES will be determined by you and align with the goals in your NDIS plan. For example, you might want to build more social and communication skills, or need support to develop a working lifestyle. Your BUSY Ability Support Planner will help you to consider your post school options that will best contribute to you achieving your employment goals.
