Description & Services
Cross Reference Moncton Region ; TESS
Description of service(s) Provided as part of the Employment Services Program, Training and Employment Support Services (TESS) is directed towards individuals with physical, intellectual, psychiatric or cognitive disabilities. The purpose of these services is to offer training and employment support options to persons with permanent or long-term disabilities who need to develop marketable skills in order to assist them to enter the labour force. These services are provided in full collaboration with the person with a disability in accordance with his/her needs and capabilities.  
 
By its nature, the process is time-limited in that provision of goods and services is aimed at attaining self-sufficiency. Therefore, TESS is limited to the concept of enabling persons with disabilities to either obtain employment or resume employment when it has been interrupted. The intent is designed to reduce or remove, to the fullest extent possible, the effects of a disability, which limits a person's potential to achieve a job.  
 
It is not the intention of TESS to support training activities for individuals who already have marketable skills to enter the labour force, nor is it the intention of TESS to place persons with disabilities in a preferred position to that of the nondisabled. Rather, the purpose is to lessen the barriers a person with disabilities faces so that he/she may be as competitive as the non-disabled population when competing for employment. It should be noted that any individual with a disability, whether or not they are receiving income support benefits, could be eligible for services under TESS.
