NDIS Job Ready
The introduction of the NDIS is such an exciting time for our clients. At ONCALL, we have a responsibility to provide the support that participants are requiring under the NDIS. In response to this need, we’ve developed the NDIS JobReady program. The course delivers a whole term’s content in a 4 day long intensive. This method of learning maximises the retention of the course content and provides the biggest benefit for students.
