We actively seek work experience or supported employment placements for those clients who have shown a furthering commitment to extend their potential for employment opportunities as we as having a realistic concept of the work of work generally.
Our experience has shown that many of our clients many not interview as well as their fellow applicants. However, as managers with interviewing experience know, the skills required to interview well are often very different from the skills required to perform the job you are interviewing for. Therefore, we encourage employers to incorporate a work experience element to the selection process, to asses our clients ability.
Each client has a valuable skills and abilities. By focusing on what they can do, rather than what they cannot, real jobs are found with employers. This not only means employment and income, but independence, a sense of self worth and the chance to live their lives as integrated members of society.
