Your planning meeting is an opportunity to discuss your employment goal if you have one. Finding the right job is all about taking the right steps, at the right time, with the right supports.
What do I need to do?
Bring any other employment plans you have. For example, you may have an employment plan with a Disability Employment Service provider (DES) or an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE).
Bring any relevant reports or assessments, like school reports or work assessments to help your LAC or NDIA Planner understand your work capacity. If you are leaving school, remember to collect all of your information before you go.
If you are registered with Centerlink and looking for work, you may need an assessment to help work out the services and support to best meet your needs. This assessment is called an Employment Services Assessment. If you have had a Centrelink Employment Services Assessment (ESAT), bring all the information along.
Getting ready for work, finding your first job, or a new job may take some time but it’s okay. Discovering what you need is really important. Remember you can build on each of your previous NDIS plans. The sooner you start talking about your employment goals, the sooner you can start building your skills and looking for work.
