Our Connecting2Work program is all about getting you ready to join the workforce.
We’ll teach you the skills and give you the support to get you workplace ready.


The Connecting2Work Program

Getting a job can be the ultimate goal for many individuals we meet at Connecting2Australia. The Connecting2Work program is perfect for those who want to enter the workplace but need some training and support first.

We work on developing the employability of each individual, from self-confidence to hands-on experience in a work environment. Work placements are an important component of Connecting2Work, allowing our customers to experience what it’s like to have a job within a safe and supportive environment.

The ultimate aim of Connecting2Work is to see individuals transition into our Connecting2Business program or enter into mainstream paid or voluntary employment, education or training.

Disability Employment Services (DES)
