You will receive training and an Individual Employment Plan, outlining strategies to assist you in achieving your vocational goals.
To be eligible for supported employment with Mobo Group, you must fulfil the following requirements:
Be receiving or eligible for the Disability Support Pension (DSP)
Have an approved NDIS Plan including ‘Finding and Keeping a Job’
Be willing and able to work a minimum of 8 hours per week
Be 16 years of age or over.
School Leaver Employment Support (SLES)
Leaving school and finding a job can be an exciting time, but it can also be quite confusing. Mobo Group can help you prepare for the next phase of your life, whether that means finding and keeping a job, or further study and training.
If you’re a Year 12 student that is eligible for the NDIS, School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) can support you in your transition from school to work. The SLES is a new NDIS support and individualised plan designed to help you meet your employment goals after leaving school.
Under the SLES program, Mobo Group has successfully supported individuals to gain the skills and confidence to land employment in their chosen field.
For example, we can help you smoothly transition into the workplace by assisting you with:
Unpaid work experience to overcome barriers
Skills training to build confidence
Development of a working lifestyle and life skills to support school-to-workplace transition.
Your work goals will be unique to you, so we encourage you to think about what help you might need to transition into employment.
At Mobo Group, we can offer you personalised support through the SLES program for up to two years after you finish Year 12.
Disability Employment Services (DES) is a support program that supports persons with a disability to get ready to look for, find and keep a job. Mobo Group is a DES provider and can arrange support for you if you are seeking work in the mainstream workforce.
The difference between DES and SLES is the participant’s current readiness for open employment, meaning that a SLES participant may need two years to meet the criteria for DES. For example, a recent school leaver may need time to build vocational skills, independent living skills, and confidence to be workplace-ready.
Registering with Mobo Group under the Disability Employment Services program will provide you with access to a specialist disability employment consultant who will:
Help you prepare a DES Job Plan
Set your employment goals and prepare you for the workplace
Connect you to an employer who understands your special needs
Support you in the workplace for as long as you need it
Advocate for you and connect you to additional support as required
Assist you with Centrelink enquiries
Liaise with your family and/or carers.
The intended outcome of the DES program is to provide you with paid employment in a sustainable job and provide you with the necessary supports to maintain that job into the future.
A participant can access both the NDIS and DES at the same time, if they are eligible for both.
At Mobo Group, we’ll provide you with one-on-one support from our consultant to help you with your DES needs. We’re with you throughout every step in your employment journey.
