Workplace Learning

Part of what we do at NextPath through Workplace Learning is to help our young adults build their employable skills through their exposure to workplaces.

Many of our young adults are engaged in a process of workplace exploration. This process helps them to determine a career path that is right for them.

We are very fortunate to belong to a community of supportive employers from a wide range of industries. Support from many community businesses allows NextPath the opportunity to place you within these businesses for Workplace Learning experiences.

In collaboration with other NextPath Goal Facilitators, our Job Coaches work with our Young Adults to help them on their self-discovery journey toward employability. The Job Coaches find suitable Workplace Learning opportunities for each individual who has identified employment as one of their long -term goals.

From a placement at Café Macarthur to helping out at Macarthur Anglican School with graphic design (her dream industry) she has learnt so many skills, been of huge value to both businesses, and even continued her placement at Macarthur Anglican during COVID-19 through remote working.

Charlotte is currently studying for a Diploma of Graphic Design at TAFE, with the aim of further study. This is clearly just the start of her career journey...
