Our Post:

Afford supports every individual to realise their dreams and aspirations. In our Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs), employees are offered opportunities to learn new skills and progress into leadership roles with Afford.

Afford Supports You to Achieve Your Work Goals

We’re so proud to have many of our employees currently participating in an eight week Afford Leadership Program. Run in partnership with Nepean Community College, the program was established to give employees the chance to grow their work knowledge and abilities.

Enhance Your Skills

The program covers a range of topics including working effectively with others, developing strategies to respond to routine workplace issues, interacting with others in the workplace and learning to become a role model for peers.

Richard, Kathleen, Rita, Allan, Lourdes, Guy and Peter all participate in the leadership program.

Lourdes has been with Afford for many years. Through various Afford directed leadership programs and opportunities, Lourdes has been able to realise her dream of working in a leadership role in the Minchinbury ADE. She has completed the Employment Work Skills Program developed by TAFE NSW and Afford and is now refreshing and renewing her skills in the Afford Leadership program.

Be A Role Model for Your Peers

Lourdes works alongside her peers and offers encouragement and support throughout the production process to ensure jobs are completed well and on time. She is a valued member of the team and has enhanced her skills to become a leader for her peers on the factory floor.

The Afford Leadership Program is a wonderful opportunity for employees to develop their leadership skills. The program is set to be available for all interested employees across Afford ADEs.
