The NEW EmploymentWorks Virtual program offers online employment preparedness training and support to autistic youth and adults and those with other neurodiversities who are seeking opportunities to practice and develop the essential skills necessary to obtain sustainable employment.

The program was designed for individuals:

  • Over 15 years of age
  • Who are on the autism spectrum or neurodiverse
  • That are motivated to find a job
  • Who can commit to 60 hours of guided learning, application and practice

For 4 weeks, participants attend half-day virtual sessions (3 hours in duration) five days a week.

 

  1. Structured Learning:

This component of the program focuses on career exploration, employment readiness and soft skills development, and provides participants with opportunities to connect with peers and other community supports.

 

  1. Virtual Job Simulations:

This component of the program provides participants the opportunity to take part in several highly interactive virtual job simulations that replicate real world work environments and tasks.

 

Following the 4-week program, ongoing program support is provided as participants transition from weekly structured learning and job sampling to active job seeking and employment. This may include 1:1 support and/or group based discussions, navigation to LinkedIn Learning courses for ongoing skill development and learning, and webinars with and/or connections to local employers and placement agencies.

 

In addition, all participants will have access to LinkedIn Learning and 1000’s of professionally-led courses and videos.
