Further to the Foundation Course, many of the trainees are offered the opportunity to further their training in a Vocational Training Centre area of their choice. Different organisations send work tasks to be done by trainees at the training centre as part of their training or offer trainees the opportunity to conduct work  at their company.
Support is a key element in the Employment Training Services offered by Inspire.  Support is given not only to the clients but also to the organizations. When a person manages to access the labour market, we provide the following services;

Employability Skills Training

JOB COACHING
During this phase which starts off when the individual client is placed in employment, the client is accompanied by a ‘job coach’ whose primary role is to coach the trainee ‘on-the-job’. The role of the job coach is to see that the client performs the work up to the standards expected by the employer. Once the client can cope independently, the job coach starts to minimise his/her presence, until the client functions independently.

FOLLOW-ON SUPPORT
This stage consists of periodical visits to the employee on their respective jobs. The aim is to support the client on their jobs, in order to anticipate any problems that might crop up.  Short re-fresher courses related to life skills and employability skills are offered from time to time, and the option is given to those clients wanting to keep attending evening sessions so as to keep enhancing their academic, and  social skills.

SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
Providing supported employment under the supervision of a staff member,
at integrated worksites in the community or within sheltered employment
The Foundation currently follows numerous people placed in open employment. Within sheltered employment, a group of clients together with the on-going support of their Trainer perform work within different organisations. This offers the possibility of support being on-site. The Trainer supports and facilitates the group in daily tasks.
The Foundation also provides support in professional integration through the:
o Development of behaviours accepted at places of employment
o Development of work skills needed for maintaining successful competitive employment
