“I would have no hesitation on recommending students and or teachers to use the exceptional services that this organisation provides for work placement employment opportunities..”

Ian Judge, Entertainment teacher | St Peter’s Catholic College Tuggerah

““They actually really talk to you and listen, and engage with you like you’re an individual. The classes are a lot more interactive than most high schools and teachers take the time to help you understand. I’ve learnt more here in two years than I have before.”

Ellie-May | NGC graduate

“Hospitality and cooking is the best class to teach, because the students get really involved. It’s a great opportunity as they get to learn in a commercial kitchen and gain skills that will help them personally and professionally in the future.”

Sarah | Hospitality trainer

“YC Group has helped me gain so much experience through work placement to advance my career goals. It’s an excellent place with amazing people willing to give all students a chance to get experience to put towards their individual goals. They also help give young people encouragement on what they want to do after school, which I think is extraordinary.”

Helena Churchley | Terrigal High School student

“The staff and the services provided are excellent. If I have any concerns, they are addressed professionally and expediently. I know that if I did not have the help of your organisation, my role as a carer would be far more difficult.”

Parent of Abilities participant

“Thank you for teaching me and having patience with me, during the last few months. You have helped me have faith in myself and succeed at something.”

Chloe | Lake Macquarie Scouts Project
