Training on Employment and Job Coaching Skills

Leuven (Belgium) 5-6 November 2019

Employment represents one of the fundamental elements to guarantee economic security, social inclusion, personal satisfaction and a good quality of life. However, job placement can be particularly difficult, especially for some disadvantaged groups, like people with disabilities. In recent years, Job Coaches tried to support their labour inclusion. However, skills required to Job Coaches are very complex and the effectiveness of their intervention difficult to guarantee.

How can companies end employers be involved in the job placement process? How to involve peers? How can supported employment provide effective solutions? What tools are available to Job Coaches?

This training provided an in-depth analysis of the skills necessary to Job Coaching, to improve the effectiveness and impact of its intervention. There was also space for sharing experience and mutual learning. The course was designed for professionals who work in the field and who want to deepen and improve their skills.

The training also hosted one of the dissemination events of the Talentoscoop project, giving participants the chance to learn from a successful good practice in the field of Employers Engagement.
