Courtney and Brett, your Vocational Specialists

 

A great opportunity for employers

Giving an opportunity to a young person who is linked with headspace Shepparton is not only meeting the labour demands for your business - it is an opportunity for young people to learn new skills.

The IPS Program provides individualised support to help young people find secure, sustainable and fulfilling employment. Some of these young people just simply need a break and to be given an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and abilities. You can give them that opportunity and the IPS team will be here to offer support. We acknowledge that it might not always be easy and that it’s not always a smooth journey. However, your support will help our young people build new skills and gain knowledge.

Transitioning from a learning environment to an earning environment is undoubtedly the biggest step a young person will take. Often this is the first time a young person has been given choices and options. You can be the employer that provides that great opportunity to a young person.

 How to get involved from here

Contact us today to arrange a time to meet with Brett and Courtney. Please call headspace Shepparton on 5823 8800.

We are excited about engaging with employers and we would like to learn more about your business. You might also be able to point us towards other employers who might be able to provide young people in our community with an employment opportunity.

headspace Shepparton IPS program participant quote

The IPS program helped me realise that I had many more skills and attributes than I originally thought.  I feel this helped me see myself with a more positive frame of mind. Once employment was gained and I had found some financial independence this was also a big factor in improving my  mental health"
