What to ask a new SLES provider

School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) offers individualised support to help you move from school to work. We encourage you to think about what help you need to achieve your work goals.

Here are some examples of questions you might like to ask when choosing a SLES provider:

  1. How many of your participants have gone on to get a job? (TIP: if they are a Disability Employment Service you could ask about their STAR rating)
  2. Will there be opportunities for open employment work experience in an area I’m interested in?
  3. What kind of services do you offer?
  4. What kind of supports do you offer?
  5. How will you assist me to achieve my goals?
  6. What supports would you recommend based on the skills I need to develop?
  7. Do your services offer flexible hours?
  8. Do you provide one-on-one or group support?
  9. What qualifications do your staff have?
  10. Can I visit the premises and meet the people who will be working with me?
