What is School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES)?

SLES is a new support service for year 12 school leavers that is designed to
specifically assist you and ease the transition from school into professional
employment, regardless of your particular circumstances

Our SLES service goes deeper than simply finding a person a job. It’s about laying
the foundation a young person will need to engage with employment now, and
into their future and building their capacity to live an independent life.

What are the benefits of SLES?

Explore your interests and talents

Helping you prepare for work

Assisting you in finding job opportunities

Build your communication skills

Showing you how to use transport options

Explain your responsibilities at work

Kukoon’s Exciting SLES initiative – Team 13

We go beyond the standard SLES service. While you can still get all of the above,
we also have a new initiative called team 13. As part of this we design an
individual training program for each participant for the year, that will help team
members achieve their goals.

Becoming a Team Member is an important
part of the development of work skills.

Our SLES is highly personalised to every individual because no two people are the same

Everyone is a unique team
participant, with a unique role and a unique training plan.

Join our Team 13 initiative!

Start turning your employment dreams into your reality based on YOUR abilities.

Why choose Kukoon as your SLES provider?

Personalised Programs

The Kukoon Team 13 SLES initiative is personalised for each team member.  We work closely with you and your support team to develop a program that supports you in your journey towards employment.

Unlike group-based SLES programs that often fall short in addressing the unique needs of individual participants, Team 13 offers ongoing support and guidance throughout the program to ensure that you stay on track and achieve your goals.

No boring group classes

What is SLES?

NDIS SLES should not be delivered as a program or take a one-size-fits-all approach. These supports are person-centred, individually tailored, strategic and planned so participants of varying skills and needs can reach their employment goals. These supports are individualised, with a strong emphasis on trying and testing through work experience in a range of settings.

Who is SLES for?

School leaver employment supports are available to NDIS participants in their final year of school and those who have recently left school (generally up to age 22).

When is funding included in a plan?

The NDIS funds support for participants to help them prepare for work, find a job, and have ongoing supports when at work.  Funding is based on the participant’s employment goals, individual circumstances and reports/assessments provided during the planning conversation.

How can school leavers with a disability join the NDIS?

If a student with a disability is leaving school and is not a NDIS participant, they need to:
– meet NDIS eligibility criteria
– complete and submit an access request.
