Timely and appropriate support is provided to achieve successful employment.
Good employment support helps you get a job without having to do long pre-employment assessments, training or counselling.
Your skills, strengths and interests should be acknowledged by your support worker when you are looking for employment. It is important that you share what skills you have learned, and the measures you have already taken to find a job. Things like building a resume, attending college or university, other jobs or volunteering you have done, or participating in another kind of training.
If you feel you are ready to work, your employment support should make sure you are not waiting a long time to start looking for the job you want.
If you do not feel you are ready to work, your employment support should make sure you are given enough time to develop the skills and confidence you need to get a job in the future. You should never be rushed if you are not yet ready to find work.
