Supervisors of VRS staff have an important responsibility to help staff build the knowledge and skills needed to support people on waivers with employment.
Supervisors can easily add the training for “VRS staff” provided on this site to new staff training and ongoing staff professional development. As you consider ways to incorporate the training, keep in mind you can assign staff pieces of the training over time; you do not need to do it all at once. Begin with the responsibilities and activities that are most critical for your staff.
The training for each responsibility has three sections that encourage staff to:
- Learn: Readings and videos to engage staff in learning the topic.
- Reflect: A short quiz to reinforce the learning.
- Do: Activities staff can do to practice what they've learned.
You can use the ideas, guidance, and tips on this page to help your staff become experts at their responsibilities in the E1MN partnership supporting people on waivers with work.
