ParentsNext: get job-ready while caring for your children!
ParentsNext is an Australian Federal Government program, which can help you take steps towards study and work while looking after young children.
As a ParentsNext provider, Access will work with you to set education and employment goals, develop a plan to achieve those goals, as well as linking you to services and activities in your local community.
Our aim is to make sure you are job-ready and job-prepared by the time your children attend school.
