Knoxbrooke Achieve School Leaver Employment Support Program


Many families turn their attention to post school options as their child nears graduation from secondary school. Knoxbrooke Achieve could be an option to consider.

Knoxbrooke Achieve is a two-year School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) course. The course runs three days a week over school terms. Knoxbrooke Achieve can be accessed through an NDIS plan or, if a NDIS plan is still forthcoming, Knoxbrooke also offers the course at a subsidised non-NDIS rate.

The Knoxbrooke Achieve course commenced in January 2018 and our students are already making great strides in their learning, enjoying many new experiences and developing life-long friendships.

With a distinct focus on employment outcomes – both open and supported, the course operates out of Knoxbrooke’s BaseCamp (88 Station Street, Ferntree Gully) which is adjacent to the railway station. We offer small class numbers and a flexible curriculum that focusses on outcomes which include: general employment, social enterprise employment, volunteering, civic participation, or further education such as TAFE.

The Knoxbrooke Achieve course covers a wide range of engaging activities including: cooking masterclasses, home budgeting, workplace safety and your rights at work, volunteering and how to travel – not just local but also interstate and overseas.

Students participate in a range of further learning opportunities and work placement options, develop life skills and learn what’s required to set-up a small business. Knoxbrooke Achieve also includes social activities such as camping, sailing, art and drama.

Places for 2019 are limited, so register your interest as soon as possible.
