Employment Skills Training
Goodwill provides a variety of programs that assess and identify an individual’s abilities, vocational interests, job readiness skills and training needs, while offering individual assistance from Goodwill staff members.
Vocational Assessment & Evaluation Services provides individualized services based on the expressed needs of an individual. These services determine vocational strengths and identify limitations, interest, work behaviors, training needs and suitable areas of employment. This individualized approach allows individuals to achieve their vocational goals.
Work Adjustment provides individualized situational assessments and training designed to assist individuals in developing work attitudes, work behaviors and work characteristics, and to understand the demands of work. Participant’s skills increase through training in facility-based and community-based business enterprises. Upon completion, an individual is prepared to enter competitive employment.
Individual Training provides assessment and goal-setting as participants explore 50-plus different vocational training kits that focus on skills needed for the world of work. Participant’s skills increase through training in facility-based business enterprises.
Group Training allows participants to hone their skills in community-based business enterprises with options to work in a mobile janitorial crew, a retail store work crew, or a material handling crew.
Coaching Services provides assessment, career planning, job development and job matching, and placement assistance through on-the-job training. Services are provided by trained vocational coaching specialists who assist both employees and employers during training and by providing ongoing support.
