Parents Next Program

At CVGT Australia, our goal is to work with parents to help them identify their education and employment goals and develop a plan to achieve them.

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 by:-


identifying their education and employment goals


developing a pathway to achieve their goals


combining preparing for work with their parenting responsibilities


accessing complimentary services in the local community.

We can also help parents to:-


increase their educational qualifications


identify and address barriers to employment


develop practical skills to get a job


access child care assistance.

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