Students With Disabilities
After you leave school, life is full of choices. Achieve will help you make the best ones for your needs. Talk to us for friendly assistance and advice as you explore the many options available to you.
Achieve is a registered NDIS provider with 60 years of experience in supporting and advocating for people with disability of all ages. We can work with you to explore options, transition to the NDIS, and start setting some goals that meet your needs and preferences.
We have four service areas of support for students with disabilities, all of which fit into the approved plans funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Moving away from home?
We can help you choose where you live, who you want to live with, and where. We call this service MyHome.
We also provide support across a range of NDIS-funded home services.
Learn new skills and join social activities
To support you in your daily life and social activities, and in exploring your personal interests and passions, we have a service called MyLife.
Activities take place at one of our Day Services hubs in Sydney or the Northern Rivers region. You can choose from many activities including art, music, cooking, computing, or outdoor activities. Plus there are opportunities to venture into the wider community or study a new skill.
Find and train for work
Our service called MyCareer will help you find and train for work in the community, at our social enterprise shop in Meadowbank, or in our busy factory at Marrickville. We also help people to find jobs in the wider business world.
We can assist you to identify a career path, provide work experience opportunities, support you with travel training, and show you how to write an impressive resume and prepare for recruitment interviews.
Maintain your health and enjoyment of life
We can support your physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. You will be assisted by our team of medical and allied health practitioners who will remain in touch and help you to monitor and manage your ongoing wellbeing.
Achieve offers a full range of support services to students with disabilities. As an experienced NDIS provider we have the skill sets required to help you through the uncertain period after leaving school and entering the workforce.
Transition to Work
Transitioning to life after school can be a daunting time for many students with disabilities. If you are about to leave school and have Transition to Work funding, our two-year program is for school-leavers and provides support, training, education, planning and skills – everything you need to be ready for the workplace.
The program includes visits and work experience in different workplaces. We work with vocational teachers to develop employment opportunities for you. We can also provide you with training in the skills you’re interested in developing, whether it be IT or clerical, administration or working with numbers.
We assist you with:
- Developing work skills through work experience placements
- Enrolling in training courses
- Travel training
- Personal development
- Learning about work rights and responsibility
- Learning about workplace safety
- Enhancing self-esteem and independence
- Participating in work site visits
- Providing in-house training, and
- Development of an individual career plan
Whether or not you use these skills right away in a workplace, they’ll be useful in your life and challenge you to reach new heights.
Let us help you make the move from school to work and start you on a pathway to the life and career you want.
