Transitions

Helping young people between 16-24 who have a disability, or experience barriers to progression as a result of trauma and/or social disadvantage, to engage in training, education or work.
Why Transitions?

Bush & Company recognise that young people face significant challenges when planning for further education, work or a career. A disability, mental health condition, experiene of trauma or social disadvantage can further limit or restrict access to work, education or training opportunities.

The ‘Transitions’ service is delivered by a nationwide team of highly skilled and experienced vocational case managers, with a wealth of experience and a track record of success in supporting young people back to further education, work or their chosen career after a serious and life changing injury or psychological trauma. Our individualised assessments and case management services are specifically catered for the needs of 16 to 24 year olds, with a focus on sustainable and appropriate career choices.

What does Transitions offer?
  • Individualised assessments to identify a career or work consistent with the young person’s interests and abilities.
  • Tailored programmes focussed on familiarisation with education opportunities and local labour markets
  • Learning support assessments conducted in the educational environment to help colleges/institutions identify and implement practical support for the young person to minimise the impact of a disability on the learning environment
  • Support a young person to engage in educational programs through the application of relevant medical assessment information such as a neuropsychologist assessment.
  • Combined behavioural and vocational services for those young people who need more specific guidance and support to progress by addressing psychosocial, emotional and behavioural challenges.
