Pathway to Work

Build your employability skills

committed to help you every step of the way

Equip yourself with essential skills

The Personnel Group has a long history of helping people with a disability find meaningful work.  In 2022, we launched Pathway to Work, a training course designed for those still either in school or recently left, that would help equip them with essential skills required when transitioning into employment.

Today, throughout our region, you can find Pathway to Work courses during each school term, offering practical skill classes and access to real-world experience opportunities!

What is Pathway to Work?

Pathway to Work (PtW) is a specialised training course developed by The Personnel Group for NDIS recipients who wish to build their employability skills and gain guidance and support, to navigate their next step in seeking employment.

This course is designed to address the skills required by employers today, including: communication, teamwork, problem-solving, financial literacy, digital literacy, problem-solving, and presentation skills.

Our Pathway to Work course will also:

  • Build confidence
  • Provide practical pre-employment advice and life skills, and
  • Get you ready for work

Our training consultants will assist you with gaining work experience with local employers, where you will spend time putting the skills you have learned into practice.  We also organise guest speakers and site tours of local employers, to give you further insight into the working world.

Eligibility and Cost?

Our Pathway to Work has been specially developed for NDIS participants who wish to develop their pre-employment skills.

Pathway to Work can be accessed through NDIS capacity line funding including, but not limited to:

  • Finding and keeping a job
  • Increased social and community participation
  • Assistance in coordinating or managing life stage, transitions and supports
  • Assistance to access and maintain employment or higher education
  • Innovative community participation
  • Participation in community, social and civic activities
  • Group centre-based activities

We also accept private fee payment for those who wish to undertake PtW, but are not NDIS funded participant.

How is the Pathway to Work course delivered?

How is the Pathway to Work course delivered?

Pathway to Work is delivered over 12 months, with participants attending our face-to-face workshops one day per week, during the school term.  All sessions are delivered in a small group setting (usually a maximum of 4 people) at our offices.

Many of our PtW participants are still at secondary school, and are still able to attend our PtW training workshops, one day a week.
