Ticket to Work promotes collaborative and locally based partnerships to create better post-school social and economic outcomes for people with disability.
Ticket to Work aim is to bring together a range of local partners (including industry groups, schools, youth organisations, employment agencies, Local Area Coordinator (LAC), local councils, NDIS providers and training providers) in local regions to provide support for school to work transition.
The Ticket to Work partnership approach has been independently evaluated and found that Ticket to Work members felt they achieved better outcomes for young people with disability together. This reduced duplication, opportunities are coordinated and built on the expertise of the members, supporting smooth transition from school to work for young people with disability.
We have developed a guide to support a collaborative approach to support others to improve partnerships and created opportunities for young people with disability.
Neither schools, nor workforce investment programs, human service agencies, or any other single system alone can pay for and provide the array of services needed to effectively meet the often complex needs of youth with disabilities. When collectively pooled, however, these resources can produce positive outcomes for youth, well beyond the scope of what any single system can hope to mobilise on its own.
