ParentsNext is a pre-employment program that aims to develop early intervention assistance for parents with young children at risk of long-term welfare dependency.

OCTEC helps parents to identify and reach their education and employment goals through participation in activities and by connecting parents to local services to help them prepare for employment.

OCTEC Limited’s ParentsNext offices are equipped with children’s corners so you can bring your children along to your appointments.
