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.
“Key Employment are helping me get my driving licence by providing free driving lessons to help me along the way.”
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
