Improve your Employability (Worx)

Ngā akoako kaimahi

 

 

Looking for the opportunity of paid work? ‘Worx' is for people with a disability, mental illness, and those on the Autism Spectrum. You will:

 

  • Learn what an employer needs and wants from you
  • Build your time management and presentation skills
  • Develop social skills for the workplace
  • Learn to follow instructions and work with a supervisor
  • Get feedback that helps you to improve your work skills

 

Our supportive team will help you to be a great employee and be part of an effective team. We provide regular assessments to highlight further development needs you may have.
