TRANSITION TO EMPLOYMENT (TTE)
NorthStar is a TTE program provider funded by the Department of Human Services (DHS). Our unique TTE program is called PEAC (Preparation for Employment and Access to Community) which supports young people with a disability who are not quite ready for work to develop work readiness skills and build capacity to independently participate in their community.
PEAC is located at NorthStar Head Office in Epping. However most activities are conducted off site in the local community.
For more details about the PEAC program and eligibility requirements see About PEAC on this website.
