OCTEC Limited is one the largest providers of employment services in Australia.
We are a not for profit organisation and a recognised leader in assisting young people and their communities to find pathways to employment. We have achieved this recognition by tailoring training and support to individual needs and local circumstances.
OCTEC has continuously evolved as an organisation over the 44 years of our existence. Our delivery of the Transition to Work (TtW) program is evidence of this.
Transition to Work is a service funded by the Australian Government that provides support to young people aged 15-24 years who are not in employment or education.
OCTEC is delivering Transition to Work in three Employment Regions – Capital, Central West and Sydney North and West.
Capital Region has three sites – Braddon, Phillip and Tuggeranong.
Sydney North and West has four sites, all at the northern end of the region – Lake Haven, The Entrance, Toukley and Wyong.
Central West is our largest service area geographically and has six sites – Bathurst, Cowra, Lithgow, Mudgee, Orange and Parkes.
TtW has a solid focus on helping young people to understand what is expected in the workplace and to develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours expected by employers. The program provides intensive, pre-employment support to increase the work readiness of young people and to help them into work (including Apprenticeships or Traineeships) or education.
