Providing work experience for people with disability

Work experience gives people with disability an opportunity to observe and participate in the everyday activities of a workplace.

Allowing people with disability to do some work experience with your organisation can help you assess their ability to do different jobs. It also allows you to assess changes that could be made in the workplace to help a person with disability do a better job.

A Disability Employment Services provider can give you information about providing work experience opportunities for people with disability, or you can visit the jobactive National Work Experience Program.

Not-for-profit organisations and local government agencies may also be eligible to host Work for the Dole activities or Green Army environmental activities (for people aged 17 to 24).
