This is a two-day event. May 10 & 11
Gaining and retaining a real, paid job is an aspiration for most people.
Whether we live with the experience of disability or not, being a valued member of the workforce opens the door to many of the good things of life. Good things like money, friends, a sense of self of self-worth, personal achievement and purpose, new opportunities and as a way of setting our daily / weekly rhythms.
Work also enables us to contribute, to give back and to show some of the things we have to give to our families and communities.
The question becomes ‘how do I get a job and what do I need to do to keep it’?
The two-day workshop has been created to show participants some of the fundamental elements involved in getting and keeping work. It focuses on an approach commonly called ‘Customised Employment’ as opposed to a more traditional competitive approach.
What will the two days cover?
What is the good life and where does work fit into the picture?
What do employers need from me?
What do I need to do to get a job?
What do I need to do to keep my job?
Who can help me get a job?
What am I going to do now?
This is a hands-on and interactive event. To get the most out it, disabled jobseekers would be supported by allies who can assist with implementation
