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 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 is fun! The trainers are awesome. I’m keen to get a 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.”
“I like KAPOW a lot because it’s good to learn new things and gain knowledge. It’s also good because you make friends with the trainers and other kids.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
