EDGE Services

Recruitment

When advertising, interviewing, and training are considered the cost of recruiting staff can run into thousands of dollars. Despite this there is no guarantee of getting the right person. EDGE can provide all these services, and more, at no cost.

 

Job Support

EDGE provides personalised on-the-job training to your Employee with a disability until they are on the pathway to be an effective and productive member in your workplace. Our highly experienced team of Job Coaches cover a range of professional trade qualifications. They will provide ongoing training and support not only to the Employee, but also to you as their Employer. Additionally, our team are well equipped with tools and strategies designed to overcome any challenges that may arise.

 

Work Assist Program

Do you have an existing Employee who is facing difficulties at work due to their disability/medical condition? If so, EDGE can provide support for your Employee to better manage and succeed in the workplace. This service is delivered by highly experienced Job Coaches, at no cost to you or the Employee.

 

Apprenticeships

EDGE has supported more than 600 workers to successfully complete apprenticeships or traineeships since 2005. EDGE will assist through on-the-job support and additional training to facilitate your apprentices’ learning.
The training your apprentice undergoes combines practical experience at work and off-thejob training with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). An RTO can be either a private provider or a public education institution such as TAFE. Financial incentives are available to eligible Employers to cover the cost and time that goes into training the next generation of
tradespeople.

For more information, please see the Department of Training and Workplace Development

 

Traineeships

Traineeships are also available to students who are in their final years at school. Schoolbased traineeships provide an excellent opportunity for students to begin preparing themselves for their future careers before they even leave school. The student generally spends one to two days a week in the workplace and the remaining days at School. EDGE has established partnerships with many Perth high schools to assist students with disability
to secure school-based traineeships through its successful programs.
Trainees are expected to work towards achieving the training outcomes, attend off-the-job training or receive on-the-job training, complete the tasks set by the Registered Training Organisation, and keep a record of progress in both work and training. Trainees who successfully complete their traineeships are awarded a nationally recognised certificate level qualification in their area of training.
