The Job Training program provides assistance and training to students who require intensive support in order to transition from high school to the work environment. The goal is to help students obtain and maintain competitive or supported employment. This is achieved through individualized and community-based training, collaborating with business partners, and developing a support network.
The primary learning environment for the students in the Job Training program is the Springfield community where students are provided with hands-on training at the established worksites. The students learn a number of job skills in a variety of settings. One day per week is spent in the classroom to address job seeking and job maintenance skills. During the second year of the program, students work in competitive community employment or participate in additional training at the worksites with a goal of securing employment prior to graduation.
