The National Disability Insurance Scheme gives participants the opportunity to have choice and control over their supports.  That means you get to choose a provider that will work out the best for you.

NOVA Employment has been providing disability employment related supports to recent school leavers since 1990.  If employment is one of your goals, please come and talk to us about your NDIS plan for supports while at school or after leaving school.  NOVA provides wrap around supports that help you to develop a working lifestyle, learn about the world of work, find work, and then keep work.  


THE SLES (School Leaver Employment Supports) IS COMING SOON!

The NDIS guidelines say:  The SLES is a new reasonable and necessary support for Year 12 school leavers to assist them transition from school and into employment. Supports may include work experience, generally in open employment, job site training, travel training and activities that contribute to achieving an employment outcome and linkages to ongoing employment support.

Participants can have SLES and other reasonable and necessary supports in their NDIS plan, and will be available as per the NDIS phasing schedule.

NOVA’s SLES can help you with your individual pathway to employment and we provide a whole range of work related skills and activities to help you get ready for work and develop a lifestyle that supports work.


What’s the difference between Transition to Work and the NDIS School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES)?

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 consistently excellent results since 2005 and the majority of participants finding a job in open employment within the general community.


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

The NDIS School Leaver Employment Supports is a bundled package of supports for recent school leavers who need intensive support to transition from school to employment.  Typically, this young person is not yet ready to work with a DES NOVA Employment; NOVA’s Disability Employment Service.  

Though NOVA's Disability Employment Service provides many of the same types of support, NOVA Transition is able to provide an intensive 3 day per week program over a period of 2 years to prepare young people to enter the workforce.
