The first stage of the project has won the Vocational Rehabilitation Association 2015 Award for Education and Research. We are going onto use the evidence to develop a curriculum for training employment advisors based on ‘What Works’, using randomised controlled testing to evaluate its impact. The training can be applied in a wide range of legislative and service provision frameworks. It will provide career and employment guidance skills that focus on the ‘active skills’ that make a difference to clients. The project will not teach administrative or management skills, which are already well covered elsewhere.
We welcome enquiries of any kind about this work, and look forward to hearing from you.
