Through the Program for Successful Employment (PSE), Bossier Parish Community College offers vocational training for people with Cognitive Disabilities and/or Autism. The program combines academic and job skills training on BPCC’s campus and in regional businesses. The goal of PSE is paid employment for students in jobs focused on their interests and strengths.
Students receive soft skills as well as career specific training along with actual hands-on work experience through vocational externships in the community. Assistance both in the classroom and on the work site helps all students succeed.
This program is built through a third-party agreement with Louisiana Rehabilitation Services.
