Job Centre Australia provides culturally appropriate NDIS activities to provide Choice & Control to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who gain support funding under NDIS.
Over the last 4 years with strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consultation we have conducted joint research and developed training programs to educate staff, organisations, government bodies and our general community about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
This active engagement and development has seen strong success in placing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with a disability into employment across a wide range of industry sectors.
Last financial year (2013-2014) JCAL placed 53% of our Indigenous caseload into employment across the NSW and South East QLD areas. The reason for the success behind this is the cultural awareness training all staff undertake and the interactions within the communities that JCAL services. We have Pathway Development Coaches who assist you with pre-employment advice and support, then once in employment, our Pathway Training and Support Coaches assist with on the job support to ensure you are getting the right training and succeeding in your workplace.
