Do you or a loved one have a physical disability? The Ability Programme, which is a programme for jobseekers delivered by the Irish Wheelchair Association, provides holistic, person-centred coaching to enable a person to become an independent job-seeker.

What the Participant Will Receive?

On this programme, a person-centred approach will be used to support each Ability Programme participant. A detailed career progression plan will be developed with the aim of bringing individuals closer to the labour market. One to one career coaching, group training sessions and confidence building will be provided.

The IWA understands that the young people who will avail of this service each require different supports and no two people have the same goals, employment history, education, backgrounds and skills. We understand that while one person may be looking to discover what their skills and abilities are, another might want to find their ultimate, dream job. A person may even want to discuss further education and training options in their region to help them on their career journey.

The three Job Coaches will work with participants nationwide. The role of the Job Coach is to provide one to one coaching to enable programme participants to become an independent job seeker or employee. The development and progression that participants will have on the programme will be completely different for everyone, that’s the beauty of the Ability programme.
