GPAPD provides a service to job-seekers who have a disability, putting them in touch with employers who are committed to employment equity. Very often training and skills development are simply not enough, since unfortunately misconceptions still exist around the placement of Persons with Disabilities into mainstream work. These include the myth that it is expensive to do so and that such employees could never be deployed in positions of authority and responsibility.
Whilst functioning as a standard employment agency, the Placement Project further offers prospective employers practical advice about the accessibility of workplaces, training for staff and trade union members in sensitization of disability issues, and assistance with workplace equity and career advancement planning.
Sensitization With Employers Training.
During Sensitization Training Sessions, employers are informed on how to accommodate Persons with Disabilities in the workplace. The training is done by Persons with Disabilities.(Please refer to Sensitization document)
Persons with Disabilities are prepared for the open labour market during Job Preparation Workshops. Information is given through to them on how to compile a CV, how to approach companies for employment opportunities and interview skills are practiced during a role play.
