Employment for ALL
Getting & keeping jobs for People with Disability
The Community Resource Unit, Brisbane is bringing Michael Callahan, a world authority on customised employment for people living with disability, to Brisbane for a one day seminar in August.
Whether you’re a parent, employer, educator, employment consultant or anyone else with an interest in real jobs for people with disability, we’d highly recommend attending this important event.
CRU is hosting an international leader in employment Michael Callahan to provide a one day seminar “Employment for All” which is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on August 15.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from a renowned world leader about Customised Employment, a strategy that provides persons with disabilities, and indeed other people with significant barriers to employment, with an alternative to traditional, competitive job approaches.
As such, this seminar is suited to family members, supporters, advocates and allies of people with disability, teachers, schools, local councils, government employees and other workers who are interested in real jobs for real pay for people and disabilities.
