Training/Capacity Building

“Trained staff provide ongoing support to individuals after they have completed the Vocational Rehabilitation and Job development process and have secured paid employment in a community setting.

Supported employment staff provide assistance in all aspects of the employment one they have obtained a job. Once an employee completes initial training, job coaches will work with consumer at their new place of employment, making sure they know the requirements of their position and that they are ready to handle any situation that may come up. Job coaches assist with attention to task, quality assurance, scheduling requests, communication with employer and coworkers, and any other employment related activities that may be needed.”
