Job Coaching2018-01-15T08:18:59+00:00

Job coaching is a service designed to assist eligible ACCESS-VR candidates to meet the changing work requirements of employers. Job coaching can be used as a training method to prepare an individual for employment with a particular employer. Coaching can be used with a new job or when job tasks change and the individual needs to get re-acclimated with the new tasks.

The employer advises the job coach about the job standards and then the job coach helps to train the employee. As the worker learns the job tasks, the coach’s involvement gradually fades, but is available for follow up.

Job coaching can also be provided within the context of a larger program known as supported employment. These programs provide both the worker and the employer with on-going support. As the worker learns the job tasks, the job coach’s involvement fades to one or two visits per month to regularly check on the worker’s job performance.

Job Coaches can also provide assistance with:

Learning formal and informal job site related expectation:

  • Time and attendance
  • Appearance and dress
  • Communication

Acquiring site appropriate work-related behaviors:

  • Interaction with co-workers
  • Interaction with Supervisors

Acquiring the sense of belonging to the workforce, encouraging full integration and participation with employment related setting.

Understanding the benefits of employment:

  • Paycheck
  • Time-off policies
  • Participation in employee offered programs
  • Health care utilization
