Avenue is opening a brand new co-working space in Newcastle this September and we are looking to build a team of exceptional, passionate and energetic employees to deliver outstanding support to our participants.

Avenue is an innovative not-for-profit day program where people with disability are supported to complete work tasks, socialise and develop their individual skills, regardless of their support needs.

At Avenue we work towards a vision for a world in which work is accessible for all, we achieve this by ensuring that:

  • The point of everything that we do is always: “What’s best for the person?”

  • “Yes” is our natural response. We give ideas a chance and find ways to make them happen.

  • We are in the business of opportunity, not charity.

  • Our staff are the best in the business. They are talented, fresh minded and determined to make a difference.

  • We are innovative and we are not afraid to be unorthodox if it means a better outcome for the people we support.

The Learning Coordinator is responsible for contributing to the successful development and implementation of skill development plans for Avenue participants, to ensure that all participants are achieving their personal goals and are strengthening their capacity to work in their team. Learning Coordinators work in collaboration with other support staff as well as the individual participant and their external support network, to ensure a person-centred approach.
