About Our Programs

Choose from a range of programs that best suit your employment goals. All Right to Work program content is informed by:

  • vocational education and training frameworks
  • allied health therapies, and
  • the PEERS Social Skills program.

PEERS is an evidence-based social skills program for young people who experience social challenges, and who are interested in learning new ways to help them connect with others, maintain relationships and handle conflict – skills that are important in both everyday life and work. Feeling connected to others helps us to feel happy and well, and to be more resilient in times of stress.  Our Program Manager, Clare Jones, is a PEERS Certified Provider.
