School Leaver Employment Support

Giving year 12 students with a disability the right skills for employment and their future

As a registered provider of School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) we empower participants to transition from school to work.

We help young people prepare for an adult world and show them how to search for employment and secure the right role through meaningful, bespoke programs including:

  • access to all Centacare services and supports
  • work experience – connected via Centacare networks
  • job-ready skills
  • access to suitable accredited training and courses
  • support provided at your own pace


Meet the Team


For information regarding funding download the School Leaver Employment Supports booklet and review the NDIS price guides and pricing.


We take enrolments throughout the year so there is no set cut-off date. From past experience, however, we have noticed that students who enrol at the beginning of the year benefit most. To find out more or to book a tour of our facilities call our CCareline team on 13 18 19 or contact us online.

Tom's story: Finding his place in the world

Tom first became involved in the School Leaver Employment Support program through his school and has loved the experience ever since.

“Our son has special needs and special is what stands out to me. I have found with SLES; with the right people around them, they find out what their place in the world is and what they want in life. They are truly invested in the students, we think it’s Gold!” Tom's father shares his experience with the School Leaver Employment Support program.
