Creating pathways to employment for disadvantaged groups 

Access has a long history of supporting disadvantaged people through employment programs that provide trainees with valuable employment skills, with many being paid while they learn.


Skilling Queenslanders for Work

Access delivers six Skilling Queenslanders for Work programs in the areas of hospitality, tourism, business administration, conservation and land management, and construction.

Teys Australia Partnership

Access’ experience in the relocation and resettlement of refugees in rural and regional areas through a ‘relocation to work’ model has been vital in ensuring the success of partnerships with employers. An important example is Teys Australia, a leading innovative provider of red meat and supply chain solutions. Teys is strongly committed to investing in the local community to support the workforce.

Relocation support includes the full suite of services required to successfully settle in a rural area, ranging from basic living essentials to establishing new support systems, including access to community services. Jobs, regional development and building strong communities are the key outcomes of the Access-Teys partnership, and are pivotal to the program’s sustainability.
