School’s not for everyone, and at Key Employment Youth Service (KEYS) we get that. That’s why we created KAPOW. We help young people to get real life skills that give them a leg up in the work force.
You get to learn new skills, earn a year 12 equivalent and have some fun along the way. Did we mention there’s no uniform?
Free! Zero! Zilch! Nada!
Yep, if all these points apply to you.
In Coffs Harbour, we have our very own youth hub, with basketball and tennis courts, a kitchen, Netflix, washing facilities and so much more. Our other offices are training facilities too. As well as being in the classroom, you’ll get to be out and about, including gaining real skills in the workplace.
We can help organise concession travel cards, plus we can help get your L’s and some lessons.
That’s fine! Just contact us and we can discuss whether KAPOW is right for you.
You will gain a nationally recognised qualification at Certificate III Level (Year 12 equivalent). Course offerings may vary depending on availability, but all courses will help to teach you new skills for work and life.
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“I found the course to be interesting and have learnt a lot about animals. It has pointed me in the direction of my future which is looking brighter. I met new friends and highly enjoyed the trips we went on. I also loved the teacher; she is beautiful.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
