Description

While the provision of employment supports is prevalent in a range of sectors, for example government-funded labour market programs or workers’ compensation programs, there is no single or clear definition of ‘employment supports’. For example, a range of different terminology is used, and there is little description of the many components that an employment support intervention might be comprised of.

The Typology of Employment Support Interventions (TESI) provides a shared language and method for conceptualising, designing, commissioning, selecting and evaluating employment supports for people experiencing injury, illness or disability.

The TESI uses literature and practice to capture the range of activities that are designed to support employment. The TESI is organised into three main clusters of activities including:

  1. Supply side interventions (focusing on support to job seeker/ worker)
  2. Demand side interventions (focusing on support to employer/ workplace)
  3. Societal change interventions (to increase capacity to contribute to employment outcomes).

This guide explains the purpose of the TESI, and suggests ways to use it for funders, employment service providers, users and researchers of employment supports for people with illness, injury or disability.
