About the program

TTT is an award-winning work-readiness program for learners with additional needs. This practical course supports students to make a successful transition to sustainable employment or further studies. Program graduates can enter employment as confident, skilled and empowered employees.

This program won the Creating Local Solutions Award at the 2019 Victorian Learn Local Awards. 

Features

  • Ongoing supportA support worker is present in the classroom and during work placement in our social enterprise café, Moon Rabbit.
  • One convenient location: Classes and practical work placement are provided on site at the Bridge Preston, 218 High St, which is easily accessible by train, tram and bus.
  • Hands-on training: Practical work-placement opportunities are available at Moon Rabbit café and our weekly Laneway Lunch program. Barista training is provided, and students learn skills that are transferable to any industry, such as customer service and teamwork.

How it works

TTT builds work-readiness skills through classroom activities, group work and hands-on learning. 

In the classroom, students work together and individually with the trainer and support worker to recognise their own potential employment barriers and develop strategies to manage them. The TTT team meets with each student at key stages in each transition, reviewing and working with the student and their trainer/employer to assist in practical ways to overcome these barriers. 

Practical workplace training is provided at the Bridge’s social enterprise café, Moon Rabbit, and our weekly Laneway Lunch program. Students will be assisted through a final stage of transition to employment or further education, with job-hunting support provided.
