LP – Disability Employment Initiative 30-Second Training Library

Resource Default Image

Taking into consideration both the call to expand knowledge on disability and the limited time available for training comes the innovative 30-Second Trainings:  short, simple multiple choice questions on varied disability topics that provide information on employment and disability-related topics, with a resource link for further research.

THE CHALLENGE:  In addition to helping job seekers secure employment and satisfying the demands of employers, AJC staff members participate in frequent training and are introduced to lots of resources.  While there is an appreciation for training and resources that are both required and useful, staff members can feel overloaded with information, especially in areas in which they are inexperienced or uncertain.  They may also be unreceptive to training approaches that seem overbearing, irrelevant, and/or unfamiliar with the American Job Center Network.  

THE SOLUTION:  Awareness training and supporting materials increases the knowledge and comfort of workforce professionals and partners in serving job seekers with different backgrounds and challenges.  Understanding how to accommodate job seekers by accessing an assortment of resources and supports is critical to serving the “universal” job seekers.  Taking into consideration both the call to expand knowledge on disability and the limited time available for training comes the innovative 30-Second Trainings:  short, simple multiple choice questions on varied disability topics that provide information on employment and disability-related topics, with a resource link for further research.  

STRATEGIES FOR UTILIZING 30-SECOND TRAININGS:  30-Second Trainings can be used to either introduce topics and information for the first time, or to reinforce information that has already been presented in a formal presentation.
  • As Stand-Alone Trainings via staff and partner listservs.
  • As an attachment to a training event and presentation invitations and notifications -- this can give a taste/teaser for information that will be covered in the presentation / training.
  • As an ice-breaker for training events and presentations.
  • As fun “breaks” throughout trainings/presentations.
  • As follow-up to trainings/presentations to reinforce information.
Note: These 30-Second Trainings should be viewed as a "Slide Show".
