In by Paige Haberkorn

What is on-the-job training?

Programs that provide learning opportunities at job sites. This helps you best develop the skills you need to succeed at a business. Ideally, on-the-job training includes…

  • A partnership with your vocational rehabilitation counselor and businesses.
  • Learning about your strengths, needs, supports, and goals.
  • Matching you to jobs that are accessible to you based upon your transportation.
  • Funding provided by OVR to the job sites to ensure you receive proper training.
  • Hands-on, real-world training on a job site.
  • A job where you learn job skills from your supervisor or co-workers.

On-the-job training results in…

  • Business partnerships to create job opportunities.
  • Educating businesses about the benefits of hiring youth.
  • Job training through a supervisor or co-worker.
