Education, training & employment

Hornsby, 2077

ParentsNext is for parents who have a child under 6 years of age, have not had paid work in the last 6 months, and have been getting the Parenting Payment for the last 6 months. ParentsNext helps parents of young children to prepare to return to work or training once their youngest child goes to school. We help parents to set their education- and employment-related goals, and develop a pathway to achieving their goals while also helping them link with services and activities in their local community.
