Employment, skills & training
At Mission Australia we understand that employment has the potential to change lives and can make a difference to a person’s health and wellbeing, financial situation and even impact their social and family life.
For decades Mission Australia has been helping people of all ages who have experienced barriers to employment – be it educational, personal or health-related – to gain the skills and confidence to find and keep a job.
Our dedicated teams work closely with government, businesses and training organisations across the nation to change lives, families and communities through employment.
Disability employment services
If you are a job seeker with a disability, injury or health condition, Mission Australia can provide you with tailored services to help you find and keep a job.
Mission Australia also runs a free service to help businesses hire people with disabilities. We offer ongoing assistance and training to help employees settle into their roles.
Transition to Work
If you are a young person aged 15-21, Transition to Work can support you to build your skills and confidence and help you into work or education, including apprenticeships or traineeships.
We also provide high quality no-cost services to employers to help you recruit young employees who meet the needs of your business.
Do you have children between 6 months and 5 years of age? ParentsNext can assist you to be ready to re-enter the workforce as your child reaches school age, increasing your independence and having a positive impact on the quality of your family life.
Mission Australia operates several social enterprises that aim to be financially sustainable while providing economic, social and environmental benefits to local communities.
Indigenous Employment Programs (IEPs)
Mission Australia currently runs the Indigenous Employment Program (IEP) in VTEC Brisbane. Each of the programs is funded by the Australian Government and relies on local partnerships. They aim to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are assisted into jobs as part of a supportive team.
Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
Since its initial involvement with vocational training in the mid 1970's, Mission Australia has played a major role in providing quality training and education programs to better the lives of thousands of individuals through a wide range of learning programs.
