Teaching & Coaching for Success

Teaching and Coaching for Success is a modular group of training sessions on educational and supported employment strategies. Sound, research-based techniques are discussed and how they can be used to help meet the high expectations of employment for all people with learning disabilities who wish to have a full time, paid career. The workshops are based on a Project SEARCH workshop developed to improve job outcomes for young people leaving education.

We demonstrate how to broaden our perception and raise our expectations of people with learning disabilities becoming successfully employed to perform complex, systematic tasks. The training describes some new ways of tracking skill acquisition that make use of Lean tools, systematic instruction (TSI) and customised employment planning. Creative ways to teach employability (“soft”) skills are also presented in light of their demonstrated importance in the successful retention of jobs.


Who should attend?

People who already work with young people who are furthest from the labour market in their last year of education. It will be especially useful to those school, college and supported employment staff who are actively engaged in helping young disabled people explore and get paid jobs. It is helpful to attend with specific learners and difficult tasks in mind. This course is also the required precursor to attending a Training in Systematic Instruction course to further enhance your ability to teach complex skills.
