PACE Mentoring for Students with Disability – Applications close SOON!

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Australian Network on Disability (AND) has a vibrant and dynamic mentoring program, called PACE, which has been developed to offer students with disability the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a workplace setting, which can assist them in planning their career journey, as well as aiding their personal and professional development.

PACE recognises that students and job seekers with disability frequently find themselves with little or no work experience, and may not be fully aware of the skills and attributes they can offer an organisation. This can add to the difficulties that students and job seekers may encounter as they try to enter their chosen career. PACE aims to assist mentees to become ‘job-ready’ and reduce some of these hurdles.

How to apply?

The commitment is to meet with a mentor up to eight times during the course of 12 weeks. The autumn program will start just after Easter so applications should be submitted by 13 March, with the chance to be matched with a manager from one of AND’s member organisations, including ANZ and IBM. This can be great preparation for the AND Stepping Into program as well.

To find out more and to download the application form, please visit the AND website.
