School Leaver Employment Supports

Valued Lives School Leaver Employment Supports is an individualised approach, with a strong emphasis on “try and test” work experience opportunities. This approach has the intention of supporting a person to discover what it is they want to do through experiencing different work types, industries, environments and locations.

Valued Lives is committed to providing meaningful opportunities for school leavers and will work with the individual and their family to tailor supports to build capacity to achieve their employment goals.
