School Leavers Employment Supports
McCall Gardens is proud to now be a registered provider for the School Leavers Employment Supports (you may see it called SLES for short).
What is SLES?
SLES is a program for NDIS participants leaving school to help you prepare for the workforce. We recognise everyone is unique in their journey to employment that’s why we build tailored activities to meet your support needs and goals.
What does it involve?
Our SLES program is set up to support you in a way that ensures your individual support needs and unique skill sets are recognised. We tailor a package of living skills, job site training, foundation skills, personal development and pre-employment training all designed to help you build your ability and confidence to meet your employment goals.
Examples of things you may learn are:
- Resume skills
- Your rights at work
- Getting ready for work
- Time management skills
- Travel training
How is it costed?
If SLES funding has been approved in your NDIS plan, you are eligible to receive support for up to 2 years. McCall Gardens recognises the transition out of schooling 5 days a week can be tricky for both yourself and your family, this is why we have added an extra 2 days of support on us in our SLES packages. This means you are able to receive 5 days of support a week for the cost of 3, giving you you added value of 2 days.
