Seeking applications from highly motivated and experienced individuals to support our ParentsNext program in Toowoomba (full time), Blackwater (part time) and Biloela (part time).

The key objectives of the ParentsNext program are to:

·         Target early intervention assistance to parents at risk of long-term welfare dependency;

·         Help parents identify their education and employment related goals and participate in activities that help them achieve their goals; and

·         Connect parents to local services that can help them address their barriers to employment.

Does this sound like an opportunity you have been waiting for? If working with parents to assist them to move back into education, training or employment, is not a job but a passion, then we would like to meet you!
