At NOVA Transition Hurstville we change lives


Hurstville NOVA Transition has a very successful program, with most of our second-year trainees finding work in open employment in a job of their choice. In 2015, every trainee found work or training!

Our amazing Work Placement Coach has a fabulous rapport with each trainee. She understands their strengths, skills and abilities and finds them work placements that highlight these.

At Hurstville, we place a great deal of importance on our trainees becoming independent and contributing members of the community. Our extensive work experience program includes employers such as:

  • Hurstville City Council
  • South East Sydney Local Health District Carer’s Program 
  • Target
  • Coles
  • Rivers Clearance Store
  • Kmart
  • The Australian Paralympics Organisation 
  • The Pole Depot 
  • Hungry Jacks 
  • JAC Unity Financial.

Sometimes we do group work experience as a NOVA Transition team. These types of placement are great for learning how to work together, developing awareness of others, and building confidence and interaction between our trainees and the community.

Our trainees attend NOVA Transition three days per week and say they enjoy it because they:

  • make friends and have fun
  • learn important things about work and being employed
  • learn about employment but also about everyday life
  • learn housework, shopping and budgeting
  • will get a job soon!

Some of the great experiences we’ve had over the past two years include:

  • industry visits to Pure Gelato, Krispy Kreme Donuts at Mascot, St George Leagues Club, Kurnell Desalination Plant, Miranda Police Station, Bondi Beach Lifeguard Tower
  • guest speakers such as Paralympic Athlete Jayme Paris, and people from Vision Australia, Hurstville Fire Brigade, Hurstville Police
  • visits to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Darling Harbour; The Channel 10 Studio in Pyrmont for filming of Ready, Steady, Cook; The Police & Justice Museum; ‘Sailability’ at Penrith Lakes; and the State Library in Sydney.
