NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme allows you to have choice and control over your supports. This means you get to choose the best provider for you.

NOVA Employment has provided employment-related disability supports to year-12 school leavers since 1990. Since then we've helped hundreds of young people with disability to find and keep a job in their job of choice. We provide all of the supports that help you to develop a working lifestyle, learn about the world of work, find work and be supported to stay in work.  

Stable employment leads to more independence for people with disability. With a good job, you meet friends through work and can afford more leisure options. If employment is one of your goals, please talk to us about your NDIS plan. We can discuss your plan while you're still at school or after you've finished. 

SLES (School Leaver Employment Supports)

SLES (School Leaver Employment Supports) assists year-12 school leavers to transition from school to employment. These supports include things that will help you to find and keep a job, such as work experience or travel training. You can have SLES and other reasonable and necessary supports in your NDIS plan.

NOVA Transition's SLES contains a comprehensive range of supports for your individual pathway to employment. It includes:

  • work-related skills and activities to help you become job-ready and find a job
  • life skills and social skills to foster independence and help you develop a lifestyle that supports work
  • ongoing employment support to help you stay in work.  

What’s the difference between SLES and Transition to Work?

SLES is based on the hugely successful NSW Transition to Work program that has been in operation since 2005.

NOVA Transition is the top generalist provider of this program with excellent results since 2005. The majority of our graduates find a job in open employment within the general community.

What's the difference between SLES and a Disability Employment Service (DES)?

SLES is a bundled package of supports for recent school leavers who need intensive support to transition from school to employment. A young person accessing SLES is generally not yet ready to work with a DES such as NOVA Employment.  

Even though NOVA Employment and NOVA Transition provide many of the same types of support, it is more intensive at NOVA Transition: trainees attend three days per week for up to two years. Towards the end of the second year our graduates typically find and keep a job in open employment.
