    Default PPS - participation requirements when your child is 6-8

    Just wondering if anyone knows - for the participation requirements for PPS when your child turns 6 - do they expect you to apply for and accept full-time work, or do they accept you looking for part-time work only?

    Couldn't find any answers on the Centrelink website (and the telephone line said the queue was 30 minutes+!).

    I have no idea. I'm single, my youngest is 15 months and I've already started looking for full time work. I was really lucky that my closest childcare centre had a full time vacancy.

    Ok, but is there a max? If the only jobs you are offered are full time are you expected to take those?

    You have to be working for at least 15 hrs, if you are not working this amount then you will have to be actively looking for work through a job seeking agency, centrelink will book your first appointment with the job seeking then you usually go every 2 weeks or so. Hope that helps

    shelle65 from what I have been told if there are only full time jobs available you'd be expected to apply for them.

    Oh ok. So does the job seeking agency look for work for you? How reasonable are they? Do they take your personal circumstances into account (for example, would they make you apply for jobs a two hour drive away, jobs that don't work with the aftercare hours available, things like that)?

    Yes they are reasonable they will not make you drive 2 hours for a job but they do expect you to be actively trying to find a job. They understand child care issues and take this into account. They do find jobs for you but they also expect you to be looking as well as they won't do it for you.
    I currently work for one so any questions ask me
