TE’s comprehensive career pathway model – WorkAdvance - allows participants to access the right services at the right time.

Towards Employment uses the WorkAdvance Model. This is a rigorously evaluated industry-driven Career Pathway model with proven results - the pilot demonstrated that comprehensive and aligned services helped 50 percent of the participants advance within two years, with an average hourly wage increase of over $2.

The comprehensive WorkAdvance model includes: sector-specific recruitment and screening; career readiness training, work experience and career planning; wraparound supports, in-house legal services; in-demand technical training; job placement; and post-employment coaching for advancement. All of these components are critical to an individual's success and long-term increased wages.
