Customised Employment is a creative solution to employment developed for people with barriers to employment. Built on the evidence for person-centred practice, its focus is one person, one job at a time. It is always about the person or job seeker and looks to provide real employment for real wages and is not about creating day services. A real job, paying a real wage in the community – real economic inclusion, not faux employment. Sometimes Discovery leads to self-employment, an innovative way of meeting community needs while developing gainful employment.
This overview course will assist you to understand Customised Employment and the practice of Discovery.
