The Work Skills Training Programme
Wagalots are hand-baked dog treats, made by the team members in the workshop. The biscuits are sold to the public to generate income and expose the members to all aspects of running a small business; as well as allowing them to develop work habits and life skills.
Job Trial Phase
The job trial phase begins once the young adult is assessed as work-ready by our Occupational Therapists. Our young adults begin this phase with exposure to various jobs and working environments to assess if they are able to handle the work tasks and the change in working environment.
During this time, the team members begin the specific work skills training, which allows them to learn the tasks in more manageable sections and to learn the skills that are required to complete the job. Our team members are supported throughout this process to ensure that they are coping.
The Supported Employment Process
Supported employment matches those who are ready for open labour market employment opportunities offered by the business partners of Work4You; and provides ongoing support for both the employer and the employee.
This service is open ended and continues until both parties decide that it is no longer needed in order to sustain employment.
