School Leavers Employment Scheme Tasmania
Multicap Tasmania can support you by providing training and individual programs to help you find meaningful employment.

What is SLES?

The School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) is a capacity building support program available to young participants in the first few years after finishing school.

Multicap Tasmania provides assistance and support to those with an aim to gain employment. These programs are individually designed around the hopes, aspirations and prior experiences of each participant.

School leaver employment supports help participants move from school to work and are available in the final years of school and directly after leaving school.

Providers who deliver school-leaver employment supports help young people prepare, look for and gain employment. They provide meaningful, individualised capacity-building activities so young people can achieve their employment goals.

As part of managing a participant’s employment barriers, providers can:

  • support a participant’s unique pathway to employment

  • help foster partnerships and goodwill in the local community

  • use their professional networks to engage and connect with employers.
