Finding a job while you're at school could give you the money and independence you’re looking for

If you’re in your final year at school with a significant disability or health condition, and you want to get to work, we’re here to help. 

APM Disability Employment Services is all about you.  

Our consultants want to get to know you and what makes you tick. Your goals, your dreams, your strengths. 

When you register with us, we build a program that supports you from when you begin searching for work, to when you start your new job. We work with Eligible School Leavers to provide: 

  • one-on-one coaching  

  • mentoring 

  • personalised job seeker programs 

  • support and guidance to keep you motivated 

  • access work experience and volunteer opportunities 

  • ongoing support when you start your new job 

With more than 400 locations across Australia, there’s an APM office near you. 

We will work with you, your parents and carers, and any other service providers you rely on, to make sure you get the support that's best for you. 

Let’s work together to discover what interests and strengths you have that could lead to career opportunities.

How we get you started on
an exciting new path  

We’re committed to providing you with the personal service that’s right for you  

To be an Eligible School Leaver, you must have a significant disability or medical condition and plan to transition from school to employment.

You also need to be in Year 11 or 12 and attend either: 

  • a disability specialist school 
  • a mainstream school and receive additional disability funding or be in a specialist disability class 

When you register with us, one of our employment consultants will meet with you to assess your needs and capabilities, and become your guide through the Disability Employment Services program.

If you already have a job, to get support from APM’s Disability Employment Services team you must not be currently employed for eight hours or more per week. 

APM is Australia’s largest provider of Disability Employment Services and our experienced consultants can help you make the best start before you leave school. 

Let’s take your first steps together

We aim to help you find suitable employment and prepare you to start work as soon as possible

During your job search we'll help you access short courses for job training, work experience and job placements with local employers. 

And when you find a job, our support doesn't end. 

We help you settle in to your new role, learn about your new employer and understand the working environment and team you're joining. 

We'll also help develop strategies to adapt to any changes in the job and how to overcome any personal issues that arise. 

We'll link your employment with your existing support services, so everyone works together to give you the best chance of success in your new job. 

If you’re unsure of what to do when school ends, or how to get started, we can help you make the best first step into employment.
