How SLES works
Information sourced from www.ndis.gov.au
SLES funding builds a participant’s ability and confidence to work with a Disability Employment Service (DES).
The NDIS can fund SLES for up to two years, depending on the participant’s circumstances, up to the age of 22 years.
Each person’s SLES supports will be different. However, the following skills can help participants get ready for employment:
- money handling skills
- time management skills
- communication skills
- discovery activities
- work experience
- learning how to take instruction at work
- travel skills.
Providers work with participants to help them get ready for work. They plan employment pathways and develop tailored activities to meet each participant’s needs. Supports can be delivered individually, in a group, or a combination of both.
These supports typically include:
- work experience in an inclusive employment environment
- employability and/or vocational specific skills
- other foundation skills that enable engagement in work (for example travel training or money handling).
