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.
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“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.”
“If I have trouble with the work given I know my teacher at Key will sit down with me and talk me through the work. Key Training has given me the retail skills which will lead to me getting a job.”
“Key contact me or the boss regularly and make sure I don’t need anything to maintain my job.”
“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.”
