Delivered at your premises and in-the-field

Are your Employment Specialists worried about employer engagement? 
Are they anxious about how to contact employers and maybe deal with rejection?
Are they concerned that they must become something they're not to sell their clients?

Job Development is the area of supporting a mental health client into work that Employment Specialists can find most daunting, yet when done well as part of their everyday activity, employer engagement can make a huge a difference to creating job opportunities for their clients.

This brand new interactive course is delivered at your premises in both a classroom setting and in-the-field. The training helps to de-mystify concerns around employer engagement and develops your Employment Specialists' ability and confidence in job development that will, in turn, increase job outcomes for their clients.

The course will cover:

  • How to make employer engagement work for the Employment Specialist
  • How to select and research potential employers
  • How to develop relationships with employers
  • How to identify and talk about job carving
  • How to deal with concerns and negative feedback
  • What to record and how

Day one: Your team of Employment Specialists will develop the tools and techniques along with a script in their own words that they can use for job development.

Day two: Your team will go into the field and put into practice the learning from day one by meeting with employers face to face. Mentoring and coaching support will be provided by the trainer Calvin Silvester (Freelance IPS Consultant with front line practitioner and team leader experience). In-field training is delivered in groups of 6, so for larger groups, additional days will be required.

This course requires a minimum booking of 4 delegates and is priced at £349 + VAT per person, plus expenses, travel and accommodation for one trainer. The course times are 10:00-16:00.
