ParentsNext Pathway to Education and Employment

Our ParentsNext service helps parents identify their education and employment goals, develop a pathway to achieve their goals and link them to activities and services in the local community.

As a ParentsNext provider, we can assist parents to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age.

ParentsNext is targeted at Parenting Payment recipients, with a youngest child aged under six, who have not reported employment income in the past six months. Participants get assistance to identify their education and employment goals, develop a pathway to achieve these goals and connect with appropriate activities and services in their local community.

How can ParentsNext help you?

ParentsNext can assist parents to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age by:

ParentsNext can also help parents to:

Increase their educational qualifications
Develop practical skills to get a job

Parents will meet with their ParentsNext Coach every six months to update their participation plan and complete activities to prepare them for employment.
