Counseling/ Case Management
The Vocational Counseling/Case Management department at ACTI coordinates the individual students’ program during their enrollment at ACTI. The focus is on assisting the students in reaching their educational and vocational goals which will result in gainful employment. This is accomplished through individual and vocational counseling along with the coordination of the many support services that are available to the students.
Vocational Evaluation is responsible for helping determine a students’ vocational training objective utilizing a battery of job sample tests as well as trial work periods in the vocational training areas. The Vocational Evaluators consider test results in terms of a students’ strengths and weaknesses, as well as interests. This input is given to the student, Field Counselor, and ACTI Counselor regarding a vocational goal that will ideally lead to a successful completion of vocational training, obtaining employment and ultimately, maintaining that employment.
Prior to graduation, students are provided with job seeking skills through Job Club. These skills include instructions for completing job applications, resume writing, interview skills, mock job interviews, and instructions on how to look for employment and many other tools the student will need in looking for employment. The Job Placement Specialist works closely with the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors and the Vocational Instructors to identify employers and resources in the community to provide job opportunities for the graduate.
