Self-Determination in the Workplace

Self-Determination in the Workplace - IVT118
This course is designed to assist the student in establishing his/her role within the field placement environment. The principles of this course are a continuation of IVT112 where the concept of self-advocacy now is put into action through self-determination in the workplace and within the college environment. In preparation for beginning a job search, students will develop comprehensive action plans to identify goals, skills, strengths, challenges and barriers to the workplace setting. A key component of this course is for the expression of skills and experiences and for students to `know and value` one`s self, and learn how to express him or her self in an affirmative manner. Student experiences and ideas, as well as suggestions for responsibilities, particularly reliability, accountability and confidentiality, will be emphasized through review of field placement packages.
