The Digital Career Portfolio (DCP) showcases a range of key competencies and ‘soft skills’ (time keeping, customer relations, ability to travel to and from work) in a visually accessible format that does not exclude men and women with learning disabilities, and also provides information to employers in a concise and appropriate format to help them assess the potential of the learning disabled job candidate. The format of the DCP wwas appropriate for other disadvantaged groups with low educational skills who have difficulty accessing the labour market. As work, training and skills were completed these competences could be added to the DCP to build up a skills log of the holder and promote access to further training or employment.
The web portal was hold the DCPs and enable employers access to a number of different candidates. That helped them choose the right candidate from the range of competencies shown on their DCPs. Both employer and potential employee were helped with this by specially trained job coaches.
A training programme had been incorporated into the web portal aimed at providing a training module for care staff so they can work with the learning disabled candidate and build the DCP with them. There was also a further training module to assist the care staff to understand and perform the role of a job coach so they were better able to support the candidate into work or training and offer ongoing support.
