Leisa is the founding owner of Designer Life. She was inspired to set up a business which provided education and training for people to make a better life for themselves. Using her wealth of experience in counselling, education and training, she established Designer Life in 2001.
Leisa is driven to help individuals find their full potential and overcome barriers, and she has achieved great success in many remote and disadvantaged communities as a result. Underpinning her ongoing success is her strong sense of social equity and commitment to life-long learning.
The Brisbane-based company Designer Life is now a prominent provider in the training-to-work jobs market. Since it's inception, Leisa has created various programs to increase confidence in the students and increase the ability for jobseekers to gain clarity with their career pathway.
Designer Life is a wholly owned and operated Australian business. We are a leading vocational education and training (VET) provider, with a demonstrated track record of engaging the long-term unemployed. We achieve this through innovation, supreme commitment to client care, empathy and passion.
Leisa brings over 25 years of experience within the education and training sector to Designer Life which is complimented by a vast array of qualifications ranging from Post Graduate Level and Diploma level over a vast range of subjects including Business, Human Resources, Training and Assessment, Community Services, Employment Services, Marketing, Training and Education and Social Science Counselling.
Finding and Keeping a Job is specific funding available to eligible NDIS participants who are interested in entering the workforce. Our NDIS support coordinators can work with you either one-on-one or through group work. These supports focus on Capacity Building aimed at creating pathways that will help you to get into the workforce and build independence through your career. We will help find work experiences, on the job training and support you through key skill developments.
While the NDIS can fund supports to help you in the workplace, it is the responsibility of employers to ensure the workplace is accessible and you have all the specialised aids and equipment you need to perform your job, like a screen reader or a large-key keyboard. Your Designer Life NDIS support coordinator can support you to remain in work.
If one of your goals is to find a job or change your career path, this funding can unlock many avenues to achieving that goal.
