Effective supervisors are key to successful programs. IPS supervisors fulfill a number of functions, including trainer for IPS specialists, liaison to state Vocational Rehabilitation, promoter of employment in the agency, quality improvement manager for the IPS program (outcomes-based supervision), organizer of the steering committee, and co-leader for program implementation and sustainability.  OSECE provides free training to IPS Supervisors, but supervisors can also elect to take the Supervisor’s Skills Course from the IPS Employment Center. The following resources can also be helpful in learning about your role and the IPS model of Supported Employment.
