plan 2day 4 2morrow

Plan 2day 4 2morrow (P242) is a pre-employment program assisting Indigenous job seekers in the Perth Metropolitan, South West, Great Southern and Goldfields regions of Western Australia.

P242 focuses on improving employability of Indigenous job seekers through the development of foundation skills and work readiness. Program delivery combines weekly pre-employment groups sessions (Fit 4 Work) delivered from our Lathlain Community Facility with individual mentoring support.

Fit 4 Work sessions incorporate presentations from potential employers, complimentary service providers (including health/mental health) with physical activity, mock interviews, budgeting sessions, Assessment Centres for multiple roles and promotion of healthy lifestyle choices. The Foundation’s mentors deliver the weekly program and provide mentoring support for participants whilst also improving the health and wellbeing of attendees.

The individual mentoring component of the program is guided by the development of an Individual Pathway Plan; identifying interests, competencies, barriers to employment and training needs. 

Individual mentoring and support is offered from entry into the program through to six-months post-employment placement.

P242 program mentors are connecters and advocators, breaking down barriers of employment, between participants and industry. Our employment programs offer workplace mentoring and post placement support once a jobseeker is placed into employment.

Wirrpanda Foundation community hub in Lathlain provides a ‘drop in centre’ service to Aboriginal participants so that they can access cultural and career support even after their P242 placement has completed.
