About School Leavers Employment Supports


Are you on the NDIS, have you just completed Year 12 and aged between 18-21?

SLES funding builds a participant’s ability and confidence to work with a Disability Employment Service (DES).


School Leaver Employment Support, or SLES, is an NDIS support which may help you.

SLES is about giving you the skills and confidence to help you move from school to employment. It offers individualised support for up to two years after finishing year 12 to help you get ready for work and plan your pathway to employment.

SLES supports will be tailored to meet your individual employment goals.

This may include:

  • Work experience in open employment

  • Job skills training

  • Travel training.

Do you have Finding and Keeping a Job in your plan?
If so, BCAL can help you!

SLES can also be tailored for non-school leavers with a disability who have employment-related goals and NDIS funding under Finding and Keeping a Job.

What funding do you need to participate?

Participation in the pathway can be funded in your NDIS plan, under School Leavers Employment Supports (SLES), or if:

You are a Year 12 school leaver with a disability and have identified employment-related goals in your NDIS plan.
