Sean Weiss is a year 12 student at Berendale School in Moorabbin. He also just saved the Bunnings Moorabbin store from being thieved $2,500 in stock! Sean has an intellectual disability and was supported to get his first job at Bunnings though the ‘After School Job pilot’ run by his local Ticket to Work network.
Since taking Gavin on, and with the help of staff from Epic Assist, GMG has taken on two more students with disability from within the Ticket to Work network for a traineeship, with the hope to offer them employment when they finish school.
Jen, the venue manager at Two Before Ten café, has a commitment to her local community. She was approached by the Ticket to Work network to potentially provide some work experience for Charlotte, a year 12 student with Down Syndrome. Jen says, “I wanted to give someone a go.”
Since starting his career at the Maryborough Sports Club, Brock Dreger has gone from strength to strength and is a valued member of the organisation. Brock is a young man with speech language impairment who commenced his Australian School based Apprenticeship and Traineeship at the Maryborough Sports Club three years ago.
