School Leaver Employment Supports Sydney

Empowering school leavers in Sydney to build bright futures through employment support.

Navigating the Transition from School to Work

For school leavers in Sydney, the transition from classrooms to workplaces can be both exciting and daunting. At Breakthru, we recognise the importance of this transition and offer tailored assistance to help young people prepare for the world of work.

If you are a young adult with a goal of gaining employment and have or are applying for a NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) plan, contacting one of our Sydney offices could be the first step towards starting your career with confidence. 

However, we understand that not every school leaver has the exact game goals. Whether you’re eager to gain employment straight away, develop new skills, gain nationally recognised qualifications, or explore your career options, our dedicated team is here to support you every step of the way.

What our customers achieved

Get started in 4 easy steps

If you have a significant and permanent disability, injury or illness that affects your daily life, you may be eligible to access the NDIS.

Step 1

Check your eligibility

Before you begin, use the NDIS checklist to confirm that you:
  • are aged between 7 and 65.
  • reside in Australia with Australian residency.
  • require immediate support to lessen future needs.
Step 2

Make an Access Request

To start your application, call the NDIS at 1800 800 110.

If you need assistance, reach out to your Local Area Coordinator, Early Childhood Early Intervention partner, the local National Disability Insurance Agency, or Breakthru for support.

Step 3

Gather Supporting Evidence

This may involve sharing details about your disability and how it affects your daily life.

Providing recent information and collaborating with your healthcare providers can strengthen your case for NDIS eligibility.

Step 4

Prepare for your planning meeting

Once the Access Request decision is done, you'll receive a written notice of the decision.

Afterward, you'll meet with an NDIS community partner to determine the support level for your NDIS plan.
