Hi all, does anyone know what happens when a teen enters employment (a retail traineeship), full time?  She has possibly got a retail traineeship via a disability employment provider, and I am trying to find out what will happen with ftb?  she will apparently earn 330ish a week.

If she has left school, you need to notify Centrelink. Your FTB will stop for her.

fiveaus she is still enrolled in school but has been unable to attend for the last 12 months.  She has a permanent disability.

And TZ thank you that gives me some better idea of what will happen except that apparently as of 1 Jan last year, centrelink prefer children aged 16-19 living at home to stay on ftb rather than switch to YA - which is the part I still don't really understand.

If she starts a retail traineeship, she won't be enrolled at school any longer.
I was responding to this question:

"does anyone know what happens when a teen enters employment (a retail traineeship), full time?"

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
