Job Coaching and Development

Job Coaching and Development:  Support for Successful Employment

Once the Discovery and Exploration is completed and a recommendation for employment is made, Job Development services are provided by UCP to individuals enrolled in our Employment Program.

UCP’s Job Developer will meet with the program participant to identify potential places of employment and to provide the support necessary for the individual to become successfully employed.

Once employment is secured, Job Coaching services are provided. The program participant is an employee of the business, but their trainer will be the UCP Job Coach. The Job Coach provides one-on-one training/supervision to help the participant learn the skills necessary to successfully do the specific job. Once the program participant begins to work more independently, Job Coaching services are decreased until the employee is able to work on their own.

For more information about Job Development and Coaching, please contact UCP at (816) 364-3836 or send an e-mail.
