Your pathway from school to work
Are you or someone you know about to finish school? For Year 12 students and school leavers, Mylestones offers the School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) program to build the confidence and skills needed to find a job. SLES funding is available for up to two years with participants working through a variety of individualised programs designed to increase their work readiness.

At Mylestones, we believe that with the right support, anything is possible. Our dedicated SLES Coordinators work with each participant to develop a core set of skills that help prepare for employment. Whether you want to figure out what to do next, or you just need help getting there, we will work with you to create a plan to reach your career goals.
What programs are available through SLES?
We understand that each journey to employment looks different, which is why we offer a broad range of programs to help build confidence and independence. These can include:
- Communication skills and confidence building
- Travel training
- Work experience in the industry of your choice
- Personal branding and presentation
- Life skills including money handling, taking instructions and time management
- Work experience opportunities
- Motivation and confidence
- Literacy and numeracy
- Self-employment development opportunities
and much more
What does the SLES program look like?
SLES is generally delivered in a combination of 1:1 and group based activities. Group based activities are never more than 4-5 SLES clients at any given time. SLES is designed to meet client employment aspirations and build their independence and capacity to become job ready.
Can a support worker be on site during work experience?
Yes, as part of our service offering we can support SLES clients on the job throughout their work experience until their confidence increases.
