Byron’s Story

Purple pathway representing NDIS job opportunities
Byron successful in finding a career pathway through Transition to Work

Before he started in Transition to Work, Byron had been trying for over two years to find a career pathway that was meaningful to him.  Previously with an adult employment services provider, he attempted the various job placements he was given, however as none of them were in his area of interest he found it difficult to stick with them.  Byron is a natural when it comes to all things IT and business.  

When Byron heard about YouthWorX NT, he requested a referral into the Transition to Work service.  Byron never missed an appointment and thrived in the 1:1 sessions provided by his dedicated Youth Development Coach.  He participated in a variety of volunteering opportunities in order to develop his work-readiness skills and attended guest speaker sessions to learn about securing employment and different career pathways. 

In his personalised coaching sessions Byron updated his resume, learned budgeting skills, social skills and how to set and achieve goals. He is successfully ‘on the road’ to achieving one of his major goals, taking driving lessons regularly in order to be ready to sit for his Probational (Ps) drivers’ licence.  In early July, Byron commenced an internship with New Future IT and is excited to have commenced a career pathway that matches his skills, talents and aspirations.
