About My Future: My Life

about-my-future-my-life

My Future: My Life is a ground-breaking initiative that encourages and supports Queensland secondary students with a disability to prepare and plan for life after school.

Imagine a full, rich and inclusive young adult life…

Since it commenced in 2012 My Future: My Life has continued to develop and now offers a range of options that encourage Queensland secondary school students with a disability (and those that support them) to focus on what they can do, what they want to do and to imagine and pursue a full, rich and inclusive young adult life after school.


Funded by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services the My Future: My Life initiative operates in collaboration with the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) and in partnership with Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) and the Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC).


Support options available through My Future: My Life include:

OPTION 1

Workshops

To support parents, educators and disability professionals to build their knowledge and capacity to assist students to identify, capture, plan for and pursue their goals for life after school through a series of workshops across the State.

OPTION 2

Transition Preparation Support

To assist students (and parents) to identify their strengths, interests and capacities and to use these to guide their planning for life after school. Transition preparation support will be offered in conjunction with workshops throughout the State.

Students will gain maximum benefit when parents attend a workshop prior to receiving transition preparation support.
