USEP updates – careers guidance for students with disability


An update from Sascha Lemon-Spence about the USEP program that I got via email. 

Careers is now based in and around the Level 2, Commons area. You can pop in and see videos that are running, workshops and job hacks run out of here, as well as the University Specialist Employment Partnership (USEP) program. Sascha hosts this program as the disability specialist consultant within Careers. Created to support students with any type of disability with careers advice and advocacy.

The glitch with availability of USEP appointments has been fixed in Career Hub and you can now log into Career Hub, click Get Advice and scroll down to the bottom to see a bit about our USEP consultant Sascha Lemon-Spence and a link to see available appointments.

At this stage she is booked up about 2 weeks ahead. There are also USEP group chat sessions every fortnight from 10-11am. These are available for you to attend face to face in the Commons Area level 2 of central library or the session is open online at the same time. These sessions are available for any type of questions and if you need more private one to one support we can arrange a time to do that. Please book into this so we can gauge numbers.

Don’t forget Skills Week starting Monday 3/8. There are many activities going on including the Stepping Stones to Employment, run by USEP Tuesday 4/8 at 1pm. This is a short 1 hr session available face to face or online with information and tips to access support services, navigate NDIS and DES services, disclosure and how to be the best version of you in your applications and career choices to get employers attention. Please book in via FLO
