Work or Study Options for 2018 Cohort

Some important information for 2018 school leavers who have not yet found work or study options.

This time of year can be quite challenging for young people who have left school in the past four months or so. If they didn’t receive an offer for post-school study or are now unsure if the course they thought they’d be entering is right for them, they can feel disengaged and not sure where to go for support. SCIPS has been working with the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training to secure funding to support these students and students who are looking to enter the workforce.

SCIPS offer two different types of support at the moment: a helping hand, ready for work program which re-engages young people with supportive employers in the workplace through resume and job preparation activities, work experience and work trials to help secure employment and a Certificate II in either Hospitality or Retail under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative – a second chance funding for those young people who are struggling to find work or further study options. This program also includes work experience and work trials for the young person. Both the ready-for-work and certificate training is offered at no cost to the young person.

To that end, keeping young people who have left school, either at the end of year 12 or earlier, engaged and supported is our primary role at SCIPS. Engaging your school leavers is where I ask for your help. Many students have joined our mailing list through the school leaver program (www.stuentrego.com rego no 56699) however there are many other young people you’d be aware of who exited school and are now in need of support.

A flyer is attached outlining the two courses starting soon that may be of interest to past students.

Linking with young people and continuing a supportive environment for them is what SCIPS are committed to.

TEE is an annual event hosted by the Disabilities Service within Griffith’s Student Diversity and Inclusion Unit, which supports students with a wide range of disabilities including, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorders, hearing impairments, vision impairments, learning difficulties, mental health conditions, mobility issues, and medical conditions.

It is aimed at students with disabilities in Years 10-12 who are interested in future university study and is open to students across South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

Parents/guardians and teachers are also welcome to attend the program with students.

The program is designed to assist students with disabilities to:

• start to plan what they might like to study at university in our career workshop
• identify skills they need to develop in preparation for university study
• identify the support networks that are available
• obtain a realistic view of life on campus and what is expected of university students.

It allows participants to interact with peer mentors, disability support staff and staff from a number of universities to discuss their post-school options.

Registrations close Tuesday, May 7, 2019
