Want to get 

 into the 

 workforce? 

Our employment preparation services could be the starting point of your future.

We can support you with learning, training and volunteering opportunities that make you stand out in the job market.

If you’re a Logan parent of young children, connect with our ParentsNext workers.

Each year, they help hundreds of people prepare to join the workforce when their children start school.

Our ParentsNext workers are specialists in supporting you with:

  • developing your skills, such as literacy, social skills, job-specific knowledge and job search know-how
  • enhancing your confidence and motivation – helping you feel positive about your work prospects
  • addressing challenges – sorting out issues that make it hard to start working.

While you’re working with us, you could find a job or start education or training. Or you might improve your readiness to do these things in the future.


Who is eligible?

For many people, participating in ParentsNext is a condition of receiving the Parenting Payment. Services Australia will refer you to us if they feel the program is right for you.

We also welcome parents of young children who are on a parenting payment but aren’t referred by Services Australia and want help getting ready for work. 

Our Spark employment mentoring service backs women to get into work or training fast.

Spark exists for women who have been going through hard times and need support to get back into employment.

Our Spark mentors listen to your dreams, goals and aspirations and then work with you to achieve them.

We can help you:

  • Work out what you’d like to do
  • Develop your job search know-how
  • Connect with prospective employers
  • Enrol in training and education
  • Overcome barriers that are getting in your way.

Regardless of your circumstances, we have an out-of-the-box approach to supporting you to live your best life.

The program has proven its effectiveness in backing people to get jobs.

Spark is supported by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Office for Women.
