Young Aspirant Working

We’re Experienced

Our background in working with people who have faced disadvantage and discrimination has broken down many barriers for our job seekers and we bring this experience to those people who live with a disability or inability.

Our Employment Development Specialists know how to help you get ready for the world of work. We will update your resume, find suitable training that suits you and the job, buy some of the things you need to get started like work clothes and support you when you start work. We can help you to balance family and work demands and how to start managing a budget to save that hard earned wage. Real Futures wants you to have the confidence you need to start work and support you to achieve your career and life plans.

We want you to succeed

Real Futures has a highly successful record of job preparation, placement and retention. Our Pathways to Pilbara (now Real Futures) is recognized as one of the top five Aboriginal employment programs in Australia. We are a high achieving National Vocational Training and Employment Centre with many National employer partners. We bring our skills, our connections and knowledge to also be a top performer for people who seek our Disability Employment Services.

Our focus is on sustained employment where our aspirants can enter the workforce to develop skills and earn money that will contribute individuals and their families who may have otherwise been deemed unemployable due to a disability.
