On May 21st, Wendy Bancroft of it’s about us research presented findings from the Centre’s study on Accessibility for Specialized Populations in One-stop Employment Centres: Best Practices from the UK, US and Australia.
The one-stop employment centre model may be relatively new to British Columbia but it has been in place in other jurisdictions, such as the UK, US and Australia, for a longer period of time. This webinar addresses the following questions, among others:
- In a one-stop employment services model like the Employment Program of British Columbia (EPBC), what can be learned from countries with a longer history of implementing one-stop approaches?
- What have other jurisdictions found to work best for clients and providers within one-stop frameworks?
- What are the factors most likely to spell “success,” in terms of supporting specialized populations to find and retain jobs?
We welcome you to access the presentation slides, watch the full webinar recording below and contribute any questions or comments about the study or your own experience at a one-stop employment centre.
