Step Up To Work - A free two day workshop for school leavers with a disability in Cessnock


Year 12 school leavers eligible for NDIS funding are invited to attend a free two day workshop run by Mai-Wel in Cessnock from 10am – 1pm on Tuesday, 18th and Wednesday, 19th October.

Leaving school can be an uncertain time with lots of decisions to be made about the future.

Mai-Wel’s new ‘Step Up’ service can help school leavers gain the skills and confidence needed to transition successfully into employment. The service offers a range of opportunities from community based employment, work-like activities, work experience, supported employment plus much more.

This free two day workshop will give school leavers a chance to see what the service has to offer – to meet the staff and participate in some fun, interactives activities and information sessions covering a variety of areas including cooking and hospitality, creative arts and digital media. Each day will conclude with a barbeque lunch.

Parents and carers are welcome to come to the morning session to meet the Step Up team and ask any questions they might have regarding NDIS funding and supports available.

Dates: Tuesday, 18th October & Wednesday, 19th October 2016
Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm
Venue: Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions Cessnock Office
5 Edward Street, Cessnock
