Webinar: Connecting pathways to employment with the Work Integration Social Enterprise (WISE) model



Published
Watch the webinar launch of the Information Linkages and Capacity Building Initiative project, in partnership with the Centre for Social Impact Swinburne and genU.

Employment rates for people with disability have remained stagnant in Australia due in part to unsuitable funding structures and limited confidence of employers in the open labour market. Now, more than ever, greater supports are needed for tailored employment pathways into open employment for people with a disability.

The Information Linkages and Capacity Building Initiative project, in partnership with genU, adapts and implements the Work Integration Social Enterprise model in a ADE (Australian Disability Enterprise) Supported Work environment. The new WISE-Ability model supports inclusive workplace conditions and employment pathways for people with a disability.

The research finds that the challenge in creating sustainable employment pathways is shaped by employer confidence, employee confidence and having the right funding and organisational structure to support pathways.
