Simply put, Customized Employment means individualizing the employment relationship between employees and employers while meeting the needs of both. Putting it into practice effectively requires new knowledge and skills.
The Institute for Community Inclusion, with support from the Department of Developmental Services and in partnership with Massachusetts-based subject matter experts is launching a 12-month Customized Employment Learning Community. The learning community model provides training on Customized Employment and ongoing support to help participants put what they learn into practice. It also provides the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners and peers.
The Customized Employment Learning Community will kick-off with a full day event on Thursday, December 5, 2019. Candidates selected for the learning community are required to attend this session. Their supervisor/manager is also expected to attend this first session. Applicants and their supervisor/ manager should save this date to ensure their availability should they be selected. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by November 22, 2019.
A maximum of 25 people will be accepted for this unique training and professional development opportunity.
