Beyond the Classroom into the Workforce

"We wanted to provide students with an opportunity to see themselves beyond the classroom and in the workplace."

Sober Living by the Sea Treatment Center’s T.E.A.C.H. Academic Program has been helping recovering students succeed in the classroom for almost 15 years. Students in the T.E.A.C.H Program live in a supportive residential treatment setting and get strong academic support to achieve a collective 80% class completion rate at local community colleges.

Now, the T.E.A.C.H. Program offers the Pearson Career Assessment Inventory - the premier job placement testing and assistance program.

T.E.A.C.H. students take this assessment within the first few days of admission. The test compares their vocational interests to those of individuals in 91 specific careers that reflect a range of positions in today's workforce.

Positions that are screened for include skilled trades and technical/service professions that require 2 years or less of post-secondary training. The test uses occupational themes based on the widely-accepted RIASEC model to assist in the interpretation and explanation of interest score.

Beyond the results of the Pearson Career Assessment Inventory, T.E.A.C.H. students receive assistance with resume writing, job searching, and interviewing skills.

Emily Bielen, the Director of The T.E.A.C.H. Program, implemented the Pearson Career Assessment Inventory because she saw career testing and planning as a vital enhancement to the current T.E.A.C.H. program. Emily has this to say about it ,"the Pearson Career Assessment Inventory provides clients with an opportunity to see themselves beyond the classroom and in the workplace. We can offer them another platform for moving forward in their recovery by utilizing a tool that has an unprecedented return.”
