Raising young children is a very important role. Combining parenting and preparing for work can be a challenge. ParentsNext helps you plan and prepare for work by the time your children are at school. In Burnie, WISE Employment has partnered with Youth, Family and Community Connections (YFCC) to bring ParentsNext to eligible families. We offer you a friendly, tailored service to help you plan a pathway to your education and work goals.
