We achieve this goal by assisting people to build on employable skills and identifying their unique contributions. At the same time, we work closely with employers to determine their needs and identify. suitable candidates to match them with.
If a business wishes to have assistance during the initial training period, a job coach is made available. As the tasks of the job are mastered, the support from the Job Coach is gradually reduced. Follow-up support is available to assist at any time. Disability awareness training is available for all staff.
