About OCTEC and ParentsNext

About OCTEC Limited

OCTEC is a leader in assisting people and their communities to provide early pathways to employment, and to help individuals adjust to changing employment conditions.

To do this, much of the focus of OCTEC programs is on vocational education and training, disability support and employment services. A key to the success achieved by OCTEC has been tailoring training and support to individual needs and local circumstances. This has required OCTEC to continuously evolve as an organisation over the 40 years of our existence.

About the ParentsNext Program

ParentsNext is a pre-employment program that aims to develop early intervention assistance for parents with young children at risk of long-term welfare dependency.

OCTEC helps parents to identify and reach their education and employment goals through participation in activities and by connecting parents to local services to help them prepare for employment.
