Finding the right path

The APM Futures School Leaver Employment Supports service is tailored for each participant. We have activities to help build your capacity for employment and prepare for the world of work, instead of just going straight into job searching as soon as school finishes.

  • Establishing a Program of Supports – reviewed every 12 weeks
  • A skills and needs assessment
  • A service tailored to your goals and aspirations
  • Small group support and activities
  • Real-world work experience

Through various activities we help with:

  • Establishing your vocational identity
  • Building key skills including:
    • Travelling and transport to and from work
    • Understanding workplace expectations
    • Time management
    • Understanding instructions
    • Working with employers and colleagues
