What can we offer you?
We offer a range of technical support services. We specialise in consultancy, the customised development of IPS program tools and templates, training and evaluation of IPS programs.
Once you engage our support services the team is available for support and trouble-shooting. You can rely on timely assistance for your ongoing needs.
There are two fundamental ways to implement IPS:
Implement a fully integrated IPS program with the creation of an internal position in your organisation that is dedicated to supported employment. The IPS employment specialist would become a full member of your mental health or community support team and their focus would be exploring employment aspirations, connecting with local employers, conducting rapid job search activities, and providing support after someone is successfully placed in employment.
Implement an IPS partnership, which requires a local mental health provider to become IPS site-ready. The mental health service conducts an Expression of Interest to find a preferred Disability Employment Service – Employment Support Service (DES-ESS) provider. A partnership is negotiated, decision-making is shared and the IPS program is formed to deliver an integrated service to jobseekers. A DES employee is appointed as an IPS employment specialist and they are co-located with the mental health service providing assistance, exploring employment aspirations, connecting with local employers, conducting rapid job search activities, and providing support after someone is successfully placed in employment.
