School Leaver Employment Supports

At Diversity Blueprint, we help inspire and empower teenagers who lack confidence acquire the skills they need to achieve success.

We prioritise finding the right pathway for participants whether it is finding a work placement, further study or starting a macro enterprise. We believe that all individuals are unique and have gifts that can be tapped into. We work with participants using strength based approach to establish their goals and map the steps required to achieve these with support.

Our School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) programs are personalised to suit individual needs. Our program delivery is done through individual, group, on-site or off-site supports. Our clients are active participants in the goal setting process.

Support sessions aim to develop the following areas:

It is important to note that each plan will be unique, based on individual needs.

  • The Discovery Record would serve to justify what further reasonable and necessary Employment Support hours would be required for the participant.

    Discovery is the foundation upon which all customisation of employment rests.

  • ➡ NDIS Capacity Building (CB) Finding and Keeping a Job funding.

    ➡ Workplace Assistance: Employment Support.

    ➡ School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES).

  • To receive SLES funding, individuals will need to have approval in a current NDIS plan, which is available for up to two years. SLES funding is available to Year 12 students to assist with their transition from school to work.

  • A SLES (School Leaver Employment Support) funded program delivers capacity building activities for participants aged 16 - 22 years old to transition from school to employment with two years of support given.

SLES is ideal for those seeking support in finding employment, developing skills, and gaining independence during this crucial phase.
