NDIS School Leavers Grow and Prosper 9 week course

NDIS Year 11 – 12 Students and School Leavers

Not sure what you want to do when you leave school?
Our GAP – Grow and Prosper (Taster) program focuses on developing skills in communication, business technology, word processing, spreadsheets, effective relationships, customer service, work practices, job readiness and much more.

This program echoes the role of individuals in a variety of junior positions including, retail, business, customer service and hospitality, who perform a range of mainly routine tasks using practical skills and fundamental operational knowledge in a defined context. Individuals in these roles generally work under direct supervision.

Our program is designed for NDIS participants who wish to further develop practical, workplace and job seeking skills in a safe, nurturing environment to support daily living and life tasks, communication and wellbeing.

We provide individual subjects with a “work at your own pace” immersion approach that is designed specifically for school aged adolescents, school leavers and young adults.

Each subject is delivered with a social aspect in mind to encourage participants to participate, develop confidence and self-esteem. As well as a classroom approach to learning, we will put skills to the test by practising them in real life situations with various excursions and incursions towards the end of the program, once a base level of skills and confidence have been developed.


This course is delivered over 9 weeks, beginning Monday 14 October.

Students will attend Can Do Training for 1 to a maximum of 2 days per week from 10am to 3pm.

NB: Students attending less than 2 days per week may not meet the course requirements in the allocated timeframe and may require additional time to complete the entire program. Can Do Training provide flexibility and options based upon individual’s requirements and availability.
