Useful resources: guide in accessing supported employment services

The Guide is addressed to both young people from vulnerable groups, their parents and relatives. The authors wrote the Guide in an easy-to-read way and they used pictures to explain ideas.

This Guide talks about how Supported Employment services can help the young adults: look for a job, volunteering, get work experience or enroll in school programs and/or other qualification training programs, and it points out some of advantages of the Supported Employment process.

Our colleagues explain the particularities of the Supported Employment services and they give details regarding the stages of Supported Employment, and ways of working with young adult with disability in order to achieve a successful, long-term integration of the beneficiary. In this respect, the Guide offers useful information regard to:

  • vocational profile, which contains: detailed information about skills, strengths, interests, needs, and goals of the beneficiary; the action plan that shows how they are going to achieve their goals;
  • support offered to the beneficiaries by the Supported Employment specialist in order to look and apply for a job. The mentioned specialist can help them: write their CV, sign up on job websites, apply for jobs, prepare for job interview;
  • on the job support. The Supported Employment specialist works with employer in order to asure that the workplace is adapted to the beneficiary’s needs. Also, he/she can help people with disabilities learn new tasks and procedures, and solve different problems.

The project “Labour market Employment for young Adults with a Disability – LEAD” is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
