Mainstream Interface - Employment


Assistance to (re)enter the workforce is an important support for many participants. DES or JSA providers will be the primary source of assistance to help participants prepare for, find and maintain employment. When a participant is not eligible for support from a DES or JSA provider, the NDIS can help them to develop skills and undertake training to prepare for work and assist the person to find and maintain work. This capacity building could include training on travelling to and from work, relationships with colleagues and communication skills. The NDIS can also assist with transport to and from a workplace when the participant has a mobility impairment. Personal care can also be funded if a participant needs assistance while at work. The NDIS will not fund the cost of educational attainment, such as course fees or other student fees. These remain the responsibility of the education system and individuals.
