We are pleased to announce that Orbital Learning has partnered with Autism BC to provide the Employment Retention Training and Assessment (ERTA) Program and Technical Skills Training to individuals on the autism spectrum who are interested in a professional business career.
With our partnership with Autism BC, the Vancouver Foundation has approved our application for a 3-year Systems Change Grant to Test the influence of the ERTA program and technical skills training in improving the hiring and retention of individuals on the autism spectrum into business professional jobs. Our grant will take effect from 2019 to 2021, inclusive. We will share our outcomes and lessons learned.
Through our partnership with CAN and RWA, we can present government funding options to our employer clients for our retention services. There are eligibility restrictions that apply to the funding, and we are happy to help you determine whether you and your new hire qualify.
