From Workshops to Workplaces eLearning Course

June 20, 2017

Are you working to increase your capacity as an integrated, inclusive place of employment? True organizational change requires transformation at each level of your organization, and change on that scale can be daunting. The Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE) — the nation’s only organization dedicated to Employment First, and the premier expert on achieving inclusive employment — has developed specialized materials to guide your business or organization throughout its process.
Our eLearning course, From Workshops to Workplaces: Achieving the Goals of Employment First, is a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind resource designed to support your business or organization’s complete transition from a segregated service delivery model to integrated and community-based employment services.
The course’s 13 one-hour modules offer clear steps for managing the transformation by providing expertise from leaders in the field, support from similarly-situated organizational staff, and best practices from those who have successfully transitioned to an integrative employment model. Subject matter experts share guidance on issues, including:

  • Funding strategies;
  • Staff development;
  • Communicating change;
  • Employer outreach;
  • Business and organizational strategic planning; and
  • Board development.

Congratulations on the decision to transform your business or organization to one that provides meaningful, community-based, inclusive employment opportunities to those with disabilities. From Workshops to Workplaces is your first step toward a successful transition. Ability Beyond will be presenting!

Enrollment for the course is open only briefly, so be on the lookout for enrollment information, coming soon!
