Our six (6) week Online Workplace Readiness Program for College Students is an interactive online learning program for neurodiverse college students interested in building essential personal and workplace skills and knowledge while gaining real world and work-related experience.
Workplace Readiness Skill Building
During the first four-weeks students learn and practice personal effectiveness skills and workplace competencies essential for succeeding in the workplace. The first live session of each day (10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon) is for learning (40 hours of Instruction) and includes an innovative combination of interactive and experiential elements to engage the learner. The second session (2:00 PM to 4:00 PM) is for individual work on course assignments (40 Hours of Practicum) to internalize the learnings from the first session with help and support from our coaches. There will be three (3) breaks in each classroom session, totaling approximately 30 minutes.
The next two weeks are dedicated to working in a team on real world projects (50 hours of Work) in a simulated work environment providing ample opportunities for practicing all the learnings from the prior four weeks.
Starting on April 30th, we will offer a number of Information sessions for anyone to learn more about the program and have their questions answered. If you would like to attend, please register for one of the sessions. If you are unable to attend and have questions, please send us an email with your questions.
