NOVA Transition Penrith proudly develops work and life skills in young adults
At NOVA Transition Penrith, we treat our trainees with respect and consideration. They respond by learning new skills, working hard during their work placements and maturing into job-ready adults. Our trainees enjoy the variety of individual and group supports that NOVA Transition offers. They get plenty of hands-on practical learning that prepares them to find and keep a job.
Trialling different jobs at the many work experience placements available through NOVA is key. Some of the other popular supports include activities where trainees:
- see workplaces first hand
- practise tasks
- meet staff at industry visits.
Occasionally we cook meals. This builds skills for independence, such as healthy eating, writing shopping lists, purchasing items, preparing and cooking food and cleaning up afterwards.
All of our current trainees are working hard to develop the skills that enable them to seek open employment, such as:
- interview skills.
We celebrate achievements every day. For inspiration, we always look to graduates from previous years.
A wide range of young adults with disabilities attend Penrith NOVA Transition. Every day we shift employment barriers for individuals who may have Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, Williams syndrome, hearing or vision impairment, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, cyanotic congenital heart disease and cerebral palsy.
Each trainee brings their own skills and life experience, which everyone can learn from. The trainees get used to working with a variety of people, cultures, interests and skills.
NOVA Transition staff at Penrith empower our trainees to make decisions that will help them achieve their employment goals. Our trainees are on the path to open employment.
