For students in Year 12, the NDIS has developed the new School Leaver Employment Support (or SLES) program.

SLES aims to give your child the skills and confidence to move from school to employment and offers individualised support for up to 2 years after finishing year 12 to help your teenager get ready for work and plan your pathway to employment.

SLES supports include:

  • Work experience in open employment
  • Job skills training
  • Travel training

The NDIS works with secondary schools to support students with disability to make a smooth transition into SLES or other employment supports.

For more information about SLES and what it can provide to your teenager and your family, the NDIS has more information about this here.
