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!”

“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
“I like Key Employment because it helps you with your job seeking and career. The trainers are very helpful with all of it. It is a lot better than school and I’m looking forward to getting my career sorted.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“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.”
