Bundaberg job seekers trained for NDIS careers
With the National Disability Insurance Scheme rolling out across Queensland, Bundaberg's growing community services sector has already snapped up the first participants to complete a local Skilling Queenslanders for Work project.
When the group first joined the project, they each undertook a skills assessment to develop an individual training and support plan to assist their studies towards earning a Certificate III in Individual Support. The community group that delivered their training and other support also organised local businesses to host each participant to complete their required vocational placement.
Now 8 of the 9 exited participants have gone on to find new jobs, which is a positive sign for future intakes of the $81,000 project which aims to assist a total of 45 people.
