The Employment Preparation Program is available to individuals who would like to develop or refine vocational skills as a preparatory step towards competitive employment. Each individual taking part in the Employment Preparation component will work with staff to design a detailed program plan that is customized to their individual goals.
Employment Preparation services include vocational assessments, career and interest explorations and work experience. A variety of skill development and employment counselling workshops can also be included as part of the individual's service plan.
Work experience and skills training is the major component of this program. Individuals involved in work experiences are supported in developing skills and abilities in a variety of vocational environments. Additionally, community sites such as convenience stores, bottle recycling, flyer delivery, fast food, and automotive businesses offer opportunities for individuals to develop skills and build their resume as they move forward into the world of work.
