About me

I am the Transition Coordinator at Emerge Supported Employment Trust.

Our programme provides a year of support and mentoring for a student or young person.to help create a seamless movement for students and young adults into activities that form the basis of their adult lives and is in line with their aspirations and goals, including:

  • Practical work preparation and experience to support future career and employment choices
  • Development of skills based around chosen occupations
  • A greater understanding of the working environment
  • An appreciation of how learning and personal development can help towards goals
  • Exploration of community involvement and training opportunites.

Funding available for the Transition Programme

This service is offered free of charge to young people with experience of disability or significant illness who are:

  • High or Very High Needs ORS funded students (Ministry of Education Ongoing Resourcing scheme) in their last year of school (Under the Ministry of Social Development Contract)
  • Non-ORS funded students* preparing to leave school (through philanthropic donation)
