Pathways to Employment Program
Developed by a consortium of employment, community and training services specialists, the Pathways to Employment Program is designed to address the non-vocational barriers faced by job seekers in their endeavour to gain sustainable long term employment.
For many, social and financial problems, life trauma, addiction, homelessness and mental illness all present barriers to taking positive steps towards an independent life.
The Pathways to Employment Program helps clients overcome their circumstances with practical knowledge and personal awareness strategies.
The program material is based on applied understandings from contemporary cognitive behavioural theories, and empowers participants to engage more confidently in the job market.
Program modules include:
- Access to Community Services
- Personal Awareness & Self Discovery
- Health & Wellbeing
- Money Matters
- Dealing with Stress
- Maximise Your Time
- Communication & Teamwork
- Motivation & Goal Setting
- Positive Parenting
The program is based on a cognitive behavioural model and incorporates aspects of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. This theory was used to underpin the development of the program content and advocates that only when the physiological and safety needs of an individual are met can they focus on addressing and developing the skills necessary to pursue and achieve financial, emotional and social independence.
This is often measured by an individual attaining sustainable employment and according to Maslow, only when the individual has achieved this, can he/she focus on actively participating and contributing to society.
Each of the 10 subject specific modules can be delivered as a whole program or individually according to your client needs. The sessions are designed for on-site delivery in 2-3 hour blocks and all learning activities are contextualised for potential employment outcomes.
Facilitated in a non-threatening workshop environment by fully qualified and experienced facilitators, the material includes instructions on how to navigate the workbooks, a number of activities and skills practice sessions and additional resources and activities for our job seeker to complete once program has finished.
Our staff will work collaboratively with you to ensure the full benefit of the program is achieved by your client.
A contribution of between 20 to 40 hours towards the Work Experience Phase requirements of job seekers. Flexible delivery which can be delivered concurrently with other interventions which address vocational barriers. The 10 modules can be delivered as a whole program or individually according to your client group needs.
