Jody's Story

Welcome aboard Jody! Jody is one of Multicap’s newest Disability Support Workers (DSWs) at Eight Mile Plains. After graduating from the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) program with a Certificate III in Individual Support, Jody has already completed her first shift with Multicap.

Jody is not new to the disability sector. Seven years ago, she completed her Certificate III in Disability.

“I couldn’t secure a position when I did it so I went into retail,” Jody explains.

However, after hearing about the SQW program through a friend, she decided to give it another go.

“I was referred it by a friend and thought I would,” she said. 

Jody said her favourite part of the course was the practical work, especially the buddy system.

“The buddy [a Disability Support Worker] took us under their wing to show us what to do,” she said.

“We got to do lots of hands on work – it was really good!”

Jody said she enjoyed the course more than the Certificate III in Disability course she completed seven years ago. 

“I learnt more from this course than I did last time,” Jody said.

“Everything was different. We had more support this time than last time.”

Jody also preferred working with Multicap customers. 

“The high needs support prepares you really well. It was a big help!” she said.

“That’s why I applied for Multicap when I finished.”
