The introduction of the NDIS is such an exciting time for our clients. As the market leader, ONCALL has 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. At the conclusion of the course, you will be job ready and employable with ONCALL to work with our NDIS participants.
ONCALL offers fee help for the intensive course so you can learn now and not pay until you are working. Take the next steps in your career and work in an industry with a clear pathway and career progression. Get experience in the sector and ongoing work in as little as four days.
We are looking for dedicated individuals who are driven, enthusiastic and willing to learn. We’re looking for people with no experience or qualification in the disability sector. If you have experience and qualifications in disability, you may be eligible for other roles at ONCALL, but you won’t be considered for the JobReady program. We want people who are motivated to make a difference in the lives of others and are interested in disability. This program provides you with a long term career path and opportunities that enables you to move into the disability sector. The training takes place in Melbourne, so you’ll need to be based here.
