ParentsNext – Plan & Prepare for Employment

Plan and prepare for employment

At My Pathway we support parents with the tools they need to get job ready. Our aim is to ensure parents are in the best position to act on work opportunities when the time is right.

By nominating or being referred to My Pathway as your ParentsNext provider, you can expect assistance with setting education and employment goals, accessing a range of support services (such as health, education, childcare and housing) and connecting with other local parents and community activities.
