Key Employment celebrated our 25th Anniversary on the IDPWD with a big party at our new premises in West High Street. Over 250 people from our community joined in the festivities with staff, clients, employers and community members coming together for a night of relaxed celebration. There was African drummers, a food market celebrating the many wonderful cultures that are seen across the Coffs Coast; a magician; prize giveaways; an amazing welcome to country; a great band, a photo booth; some inspiring speeches and plenty of dancing. The highlight of the evening was seeing CEO and founder of Key Employment Chris Worboys receive the Hall of Fame award for his lifetime of work helping people with disability achieve their dreams.
Key Employment COO Jodi Wood said “A lot of work went into the organisation of this party and I am thrilled with the end result. Seeing so many from our community coming together having fun and celebrating such a wonderful company. Key Employment has helped change the lives of so many people and are such big supporters of the Coffs Community. It was an amazing night celebrating this. Now bring on the next 25 years!”

“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
“It’s a great place to be to make great friendships and get along with everyone. They have a good laugh and make it fun. The teachers are chilled and not as strict. They treat us with respect and like adults.”
