Abstract

These guidelines are intended to be used in a European framework for qualification and
professional standards of a Job Coach specialized to support persons with disabilities
(JC/D).
In the long term, a full professionalization with unified education standards and curricular
contents for JC/D should be developed.
However, for now the (yet to be fully established) profession of a JC/D comprises of
experts from different disciplines, amongst others, education, social work, occupational
science, administration, and health care.
A qualified JC/D requires a common knowledge base about the conditions of individuals
that are in need of a JC/D.
In this handbook we decided to focus on three major clinical presentations: autism
spectrum disorder, mental health disorders, and intellectual disabilities. The activities of a
specialized JC/D are especially crucial for integration and success in the labour market
for persons with these diagnoses.
