Our committed employment consultants spend time helping you settle into your new workplace and assist with any on-the-job training where required.
We'll work with you to develop a support plan which is tailored to your circumstances and the needs of your employer.
We'll support you for the first six months of employment in a manner that best suits you.
Should you require further support beyond the first six months of work, we’ll discuss the available options with you.
Our service is funded by the Australian Government to help you achieve your employment goals.
We aim to help you reach a good level of independence and enjoy a successful, productive life at work, at no cost to you or your employer.
If you need additional assistance when you start work, we can also help with:
workplace modifications and special equipment, if required
outlining your specific job responsibilities including tasks, procedures and hours
creating ordered instructions, checklists or reminders for multiple duties
performance appraisals and timetables for skills development
Your support needs will usually gradually change as you become comfortable in your new job.
After 26 weeks we review your employment support needs and discuss your ability to work independently.
If you're in the Disability Employment Services program, your support may continue beyond 26 weeks.
If you feel you need extra support you can contact your APM consultant at any time.
