The CASE Plan

NYS CASE trainings provide you with the opportunity to engage in an active learning environment with peers around New York State and achieve credentials that demonstrate your competency in the field.

NYS CASE is a multi-faceted strategy that includes:

  • A statewide performance baseline
  • Policy and practice goals
  • Training curriculum and organizational development resources
  • Regional and distance training opportunities
  • Organizational development support
  • Evaluation of training and resources

Attending NYS CASE trainings allows you to interact with and learn from other providers from around New York State.

Who understands what you do best than your peers in the field? This is an opportunity to spend a day benefitting from multiple perspectives and sharing experiences so that others might learn.

Our experienced NYS CASE trainers have developed courses with the most up-to-date theories and practices

Courses include a wide variety of learning in the areas of supported employment, youth transition, and employer engagement. The tools and tips shared during the trainings can be applied immediately to your work.

As a job developer, one of the most important skills to learn is how to build business relationships.

NYS CASE courses train you in the best practices for developing the necessary relationships with businesses so that your clients will achieve success in the workplace.

CASE trainings have offered a vehicle for employment staff to have the additional training to ensure quality services for people we support to reach their career goals.
