What is the SLES Program
The Bayley House SLES Program is a part-time 2-year NDIS initiative for students leaving school. It is designed to support school leavers to build skills for employment including but not limited to; social skills, setting up a bank account, numeracy, and literacy skills, organising a resume, interview skills, IT skills, safety in the workplace, independence at work, and if required travel training support.
What outcomes can you expect from the program?
The primary aim of the SLES Program at Bayley House is to help you build the skills needed to seek and successfully apply for a job and the confidence to do so. On successful completion of the SLES Program we will connect you with a local Disability Employment Service (DES) who will help to look for employment suited to your interests and skills.
How do you join?

Many Bayley House clients established basic work-based skills in our various Day Services programs and several have expressed a wish to take it to the next level to build these skills in a working environment in the community. However, some lacked the experience and confidence to do this alone so Bayley House Community Engagement Program works with local businesses to facilitate both individual and group work experience activities.
Bayley House recently partnered with the local Coles and arranged for a small group to regularly visit and work at Coles together. With the support of the enthusiastic Coles team, the clients felt safe alongside their peers and over time built the confidence to interact with the supermarket staff and customers.
The work-experince group organise shelf stock management and assist Coles staff in the checkout areas. We are regularly working with Coles to support the work-experience clients to continue to build their workplace readiness in preparation for employment opportunities in the future and would like to thank Coles for their ongoing support.
