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. 

Spark exists to back people to achieve employment or improved work readiness, particularly people who need more support than the mainstream employment services can offer.

We listen to your dreams, goals and aspirations and then work with you to create a pathway to achieve them.

  • Develop your job search know-how.
  • Gain knowledge about specific jobs and undertake training.
  • Connect with prospective employers.
  • Take on a volunteering role.
