IDEASWA aims to provide a rich array of information and resources to benefit disability services in Western Australia.


Pathways to Work

A range of options exist for making the transition from school to work, or for the support a person with disability might need to find and keep a job.

Research shows that it's more likely to find and keep a suitable and sustainable job if people take part in after-school jobs, work experience, school-based traineeships, training or volunteering, as it helps build the skills needed to do the work, and most importantly help the person decide what job is best suited to them.

It is important to maintain high expectations, and ensure people with disability are encouraged to explore their work options before they finish school.

You may be able to get support for your school-to-work transition activities. The resources below are designed to assist people with disability, their families and anyone supporting school-to-work transition to understand the diverse options available and how to put this support into your NDIS plan.
