What is involved in the employer-partner training?

Currently, there are six modules in the employer partner training that will range from 30 to 60 minutes in duration to be completed before the participants work placement. Companies completing the training will be eligible for a digital badge or certificate of completion. Training is designed to make the work placement set the stage for a successful working relationship.

Modules include:

  1. What is Autism?
  2. How to create an idea work environment and interact with Autistic individuals in a best practice way?
  3. Role of the career coach, supervisor, and mentor.
  4. RoboCoach software training for employers.
  5. How to define an appropriate job task and role.
  6. What employer-partners need to do before, during and after the work experience.

Treaty Acknowledgement


The ACT! Program is honoured to teach and learn across many traditional and treaty lands including the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples of the QayQayt (KuhKite) and Kwikwetlem First Nations to the West; through the treatied lands and traditional territories of the Nehiyawak, Dene, Stoney Nakoda, Nakota Sioux, Tsuutina, Annishnabe, Metis, and Inuit; all the way to the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit in the Place of the Alders along the Humber River Watershed in the East. The Autism CanTech! Team is dedicated to ensuring that Indigenous voice is centered, honoured and respected. In this spirit, we invite you to reflect on your relationship to the lands on which you are currently located, and take action for positive change in your community in this time of reconciliation.
