Canadian Association for Supported Employment


Certificate Programs

Finding solutions to today’s employment challenges.

CASE Certificate Programs are fully facilitated, in-depth learning offerings that typically last 5-8 weeks with the exception of the Digital Literacy Instructor program. Individual class sizes are kept small to foster a sense of community and provide for increased engagement with the instructor.

Our Supported Employment Essentials, Job Development and Solution-Focused Career Practitioner Certificate Programs involve asynchronous activities. This means that you can review the online learning content within a designated time (typically one week). The content includes constructive resources and assessments.

These programs also involve synchronous learning elements, such as participating in Zoom webinars, where you will have the opportunity to dive deeper into the modular content and receive feedback from experienced instructors. You can also engage in live discussions during the webinars or use discussion boards to connect with peers across Canada to further explore critical ideas in the field of supported employment.

The Digital Literacy Instructor Certificate Program is built on a train-the-trainer model and is 100% asynchronous, allowing you to complete the content within a 3-month period. This program offers lesson plans for instructors, resource guides, videos, and downloadable resources to prepare a learner to instruct their own program on the CASE learning portal.

Upon completion of any CASE Certificate Program, you will receive micro-credentials that verify your participation in the program and outline the targeted knowledge, skills and/or competencies addressed.

Digital Literacy Training

Be Where The World Is Going.

Digital literacy is recognized as a critical skill set that supports life-long learning and increases employability. With significant changes to the labour market both globally and nationally, many job seekers and new employees are required to use technology to effectively find information, communicate, and complete job related tasks.

The Solution-Focused Career Practitioner

Deeper Understanding. Better Solutions.

The solution-focused approach invites us to remember that every job seeker holds a core part of the solution to their employment challenges. By listening deeply, remaining genuinely curious, and asking powerful solution-focused questions, we invite the job-seeker to envision their preferred employment future while exploring the strengths, resources, and sources of motivation that will enable them to achieve their goals.
