Increase your chances of getting a job before you leave School or TAFE

School

The aim of the School Leaver Program is to assist & prepare students with disability transition from school or TAFE to entering mainstream workforce in their chosen career path.

DVJS assists students develop REAL skills, gain REAL work experience & obtain employment in their chosen field. Many students  face difficulty finding a job when they leave school/ TAFE...by linking with DVJS, they increase their chances of obtaining employment before they leave school/TAFE.

DVJS works with students in their final year of schooling by assisting them overcome barriers, build confidence & work awareness.

DVJS relies on suitable opportunities being available within the labour market & cannot guarantee employment will be obtained.

Chisholm TAFE (TSEP)

DVJS is very proud to be partnering with Chisholm Institute TAFE under a pilot program called TAFE Specialist Employment Partnership which commenced November 2020. DVJS & Chisholm will collaboratively work to assist TAFE students with disability who are either about to graduate or who have graduated find suitable employment related to their course.
