Participating in the program
We will work with you to identify a learning path that will help you achieve a Year 12 Certificate or a Certificate II equivalent.
This may include accessing local high schools or TAFEs. In some circumstances, distance or online learning courses might be a better choice. No matter what path you decide to take, we will be there to support you in figuring out how to improve your future employment options through education.
We will also work with you to identify other support services and early-childhood learning options you and your child can access.
What you need to do
While you are eligible for the extra assistance available through this program, you will need to go to interviews, develop a Participation Plan and participate in the activities you agree to.
If, without a good reason and talking to us first, you don’t do these things, your payment may be stopped until you go to your missed interview or start participating again.
Who this program is for
For now, the extra assistance available under this program is limited to people who meet the eligibility criteria and live in one of the 10 selected Local Government Areas.
In the future, the program may be available everywhere, but for now only people who are asked to participate are able to receive the extra assistance.
If you move, get your qualification, or work part time
If you move to a different area, your plan may need to be adjusted, but you will still be eligible to receive the extra assistance available under this program.
Once you get your Year 12 Certificate or Certificate II equivalent qualification, you can choose to volunteer for the program and continue getting the extra assistance.
If you work part time, you can still access the extra assistance available through this program.
