In addition to job site training, job coaching includes related assessment, job development, counseling, advocacy, travel training and other services needed to maintain the employment.<br />
  11. 11. Through job coaching, a qualified individual (job coach) works directly with an individual with a disability in a training or placement site to help him/her learn the specific requirements of the job; learn work-related activities and requirements such as time and attendance rules; and learn appropriate work-related (including social) behaviors when dealing with supervisors and co-workers.<br />By placing a student directly in a job with the hands-on assistance of a job coach, areas of vocational and personal strength and weakness become apparent early in the process and are based on actual, not projected or simulated experience; the consumer is able to receive immediate feedback, assistance, and follow-up from the support person; and an employer is able to take on and observe the progress of the consumer without a full commitment of personnel resources in the beginning of the process.<br />
  12. 12. Introduction<br />The primary goal of the CBCE program is to prepare students to become productive, valued members of the work force in the community in which they choose to live.<br />THE CBCE PROGRAM IS BASED ON THE FOLLOWING BELIEFS:<br /> <br />When given appropriately designed training and support, all students can successfully learn the skills necessary to perform meaningful work <br />in integrated employment settings. <br /> <br />Community Based Career Education cannot be duplicated in a classroom. <br /> <br />All people have a right to work, which enables one to feel worthwhile.<br /> <br />Inclusion into the CBCE program is not contingent upon communicative or social prerequisites.<br />
  13. 13. Brief History & Philosophy of the CBCE Program<br />Began with a grant over 20 years ago<br />Philosophy is: “Pre” means NEVER<br />For certain students, vocational skills need to be learned in the actual work setting<br />
