Establishing transition from placement to continuing work experience or supported employment placement


There are five stages to the supported employment programme process;

  1. Student engagement: initial assessment and vocational profiling
  2. Employer engagement: find the supported employment placement
  3. Job Matching: develop the supported employment placement with the student
  4. In-Work support: transfer the placement into sustainable employment
  5. Career Progression: helping the student retain the job.

There are a similar range of stages associated with finding successful work placements, but without the need to establish part time paid employment at the outset.
