Person-Centered Employment Planning Training

The Person-Centered Employment Planning Training (PCEP) is a two-day training that provides a training environment to support customers to gain the necessary skills and experiences in work readiness to successfully transition into postsecondary education and/or competitive integrated employment. 

Certified Person-Centered Planning (PCP) and People Planning Together (PPT) trainers, will design and provide activities for students to identify future career goals, social skills and independent living skills necessary for that career, and the steps necessary to reach their career goals. Students will also 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, not just a job. 

A plan is most successful when the parents/guardians also understand the principles of person-centered planning and are working with their child to help them achieve their goals. So, this training is not just for the self-advocates but also for their parents/guardians.

The training will be presented by both parents and persons who have disabilities that are certified with The Learning Community on Person Centered Practices. Four sessions will offered for youth and adults (ages 14-22) who are currently receiving services from Texas Workforce Commission- Vocational Rehabilitation.
