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.
How CVGT is helping Parents
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
- Develop practical skills to get a job
- Identify and address barriers to employment
- 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.
