Our Eligible School Leaver (ESL) service assists those students who live with disability, injury or illness, but who do not require an NDIS plan, to find employment.

This program supports eligible students build their skills and experience in an industry of their choice.  After registering with us, we will work with you to build key skills through training programs, work experience or volunteering opportunities.

We will then work with you to help you find paid work in roles that match your interests and experience, providing you support with job applications, interviews and even transport to and from the workplace.

We stay with you for the whole process and will offer as much support as you feel you require.

If you are at least 15 years old, living with disability, injury or illness, are in your final year of high school as a full time student, and have a future work capacity of at least 8 hours a week, you are eligible to sign up for our ESL program.

You must also either: attend a high school for students with disability; attend a dedicated class for students with disability within a mainstream high school; receive a disability support pension; or attend mainstream classes and high school and attract additional educational funding due to disability. 

If you meet this criteria, then we would love to work with you. Call us on 1800 224 548 to book an appointment or email us at info@fp.org.au
