Supported Employment Success

Supported Employment Success (SES) will examine the role of the employment professional in assisting a person experiencing disability work towards their employment goals. While you may not call yourself an ‘employment professional’, if you support someone to meet their employment goals, then that is what you are!

This course will help you learn the skills and strategies you need to support a job seeker to be successful in preparing for, obtaining, or maintaining employment. SES also provides strategies to use when meeting with and supporting employers to hire people experiencing disability, further developing inclusive workplaces.

This course includes a variety of templates and resources, module workbooks for you to keep and reference throughout your career, is fully narrated, and takes approximately six (6) hours to complete.

Learners have 60 days to complete SES.

Modules Include:

Module 1 - Supported Employment Basics

Module 2 - Discovering the Job Seeker's Personal Genius

This module will help you learn how to discover the job seeker’s personal genius and support them to prepare for employment. Using this person-centred approach will help you get to know the job seeker’s values, interests, preferred work environment, and other things that are important to them. All of which is valuable information to have before the search for employment begins.

Module 3 - Job Coaching

About Supported Employment

Work is an essential part of our lives – it is important to our health and well-being, contributes to our happiness and contentment, and provides us with purpose. We all value being able to earn a living through work we enjoy. However, when people experiencing disability decide they want to work, their road to employment can be difficult. This is because they may not have a lot of related experience to draw from to help them make informed decisions on what they want to do for a living, and where specifically they would like to work, and may need some support along the way.

This is where supported employment can be a great option. Supported employment is a flexible approach that helps people experiencing disability to find employment in their community through the assistance of an employment professional, or anyone who supports a person with employment, and provides a variety of supports to both the job seeker/supported employee and employer.
