Person-Centered Employment Planning Training (PCEP) Project

The Person-Centered Employment Planning Training (PCEP) Project provides an environment that supports students with disabilities that are ages 14-22 in gaining the skills and experiences necessary for a successful transition into postsecondary education and/or competitive integrated employment through the development of their person-centered employment plan. 

Certified Person-Centered Planning (PCP) and People Planning Together (PPT) trainers will design and provide activities for students to identify career goals, social and independent living skills necessary for that career, as well as the steps necessary to reach their goals. Students will practice self-advocacy skills with the support of project staff and trainers throughout the development and dissemination of their plan. Developing a person-centered plan will lead to the pursuit of a career, rather than just a job. The Person-Centered Employment Plan is much more than a road map that supports and guides students toward their career goals. This training helps students gain autonomy for their own lives and planning and teaches them to create and communicate their own employment goals.

The PCEP Project has a 2-day in person training option or 4 half day virtual training options. 

Sessions will be offered for youth and adults aged 14-22 with disabilities who are currently enrolled in school. Once there is interest in the PCEP training, please reach out to the University contacts to help you begin the process of scheduling a session. 

A plan is most successful when parents/guardians understand the principles of person-centered planning and are working with their child to help them achieve their goals. The training will be presented and facilitated by both parents and students who have disabilities that are certified with The Learning Community on Person Centered Practices. 

Will the student’s plans match up with their parent’s plans?

Sessions will be offered for youth and adults aged 14-22 with disabilities who are currently enrolled in school. Once there is interest in the PCEP training, please reach out to the University contacts to help you begin the process of scheduling a session.
