EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

With a job comes dignity, respect and a better income. Better income means more choices, and more choices means greater freedom. Greater freedom means a more fulfilling life. For these reasons we at MacDonald Training Center have committed ourselves to being one of the premier providers of employment services in the nation.

acquiring needed job-skills,

developing job opportunities,

obtaining the job,

providing on-the-job training,

soft skills training and guidance, and

developing natural supports.

 

Supported Employment utilizes a one to one person-centered approach in obtaining competitive employment by utilizing the support of an Employment Coach for job development, intensive systematic job training and job maintenance services for the duration of employment  This best practice approach is essential for ensuring satisfaction and success throughout the employment process.

 

Job Placement/Time-Limited Supported Employments Services is designed for those who have previous work experiences and/or have life experiences which can more easily transfer into specific job skills. Employment specialists are flexible in providing only those services needed for successful employment. Job maintenance services are available for the first 90 days of employment. Follow-along services may also be available through our collaboration with Hillsborough County Schools.

 

Consider the Case for Business

Hiring and retaining qualified individuals with disabilities will position a business to create products and provide services that will generate the loyalty of the second largest minority group in the United States.

 

According to the 2010 NOD/Kessler Foundation Harris Survey, “There is no significant difference between people with disabilities and their nondisabled peers in their ability to acquire new skills, their absenteeism, their flexibility to adapt to new situations and their dedication.”

 

88% of Americans prefer to give their business to employers who hire people with disabilities.  (Source:  Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation 2006)
