The purpose of this training is to teach basic skills and techniques of job coaching for community employment of people with disabilities. The intended outcome is to help you support people with disabilities to learn the skills to get and keep a job in the community. Job Coaches will learn specific skills, such as task analysis and systematic instruction, to be applied individually with people they serve.
UNTWISE calls this training Job Coaching for Success because we know that real success requires more than skill. The Job Coach must be able to know what to teach and how to teach it!
