NDIS and Customised Employment Support

IDEAL Placements believes all people have the right to paid employment. Customised Employment is an individualised approach to vocational and employment supports and service:

One Person at a Time!

The goal of Customised Employment is to tailor meaningful employment/self-employment opportunities to fit the skills, interested, strengths, and support needs of the individual whilst meeting business and the market requirements.

Support staff gathers information about a customer’s individual interests, strengths, the types of support that are most effective, the skills the individual has, and the types of environments and activities where this person is at their best. This information is gathered in a series of interviews, observations and activities that occur in natural environments and that are typical to the individual.

So, if you feel are would like to gain employment, voluntary work or work experience or you have a NDIS goal that relates to employment – IDEAL Placement is the service for you!

Becoming A Worker (BAW) Program
