Job Coach Service
Support in the workplace can be customised to the individual needs of each client to provide the best support for them to fulfil their job role. We do this by ensuring the client and employer are fully supportive of this and are willing to work alongside us to create a support plan.
An initial assessment is done with the client to gain an understanding of their needs and wishes in order to support with achieving employment goals.
Our Job Coach Service is all about the client. We can support with:
- Coaching & Mentoring: Personalised guidance to help you shine in your role.
- Advice & Support: Navigate workplace challenges with confidence and expertise.
- Liaison Services: Bridging the gap between you and your employer for a harmonious work environment.
- Equitable Adjustments: Suggesting changes that enhance your productivity, happiness and overall well-being.
This supports with:
- Identifying strengths and challenges in employment
- Understanding the tasks that you are able to undertake independently without support
- Tasks where you require support and how the Job Coach can support and enable the client to do the tasks/what the Job Coach can do to enable the client to do the tasks.
We work within the government guidelines for Access to Work. Please visit the UK Government website here for full details
