The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) provides guidance and support to the state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies that are charged with providing job training and placement, as well as on-the-job supports to aid individuals with disabilities in finding and retaining employment. State VR agencies can be most successful when they understand labor force trends and can look ahead at the projected soft and hard skills employers need to train and prepare candidates for the jobs of the future.

New Editions manages the Rehabilitation Services Administration’s (RSA) National Clearinghouse of Rehabilitation Training Materials (NCRTM) - www.ncrtm.ed.gov - and technical assistance webinars. The NCRTM is RSA’s gateway to technical assistance and training providing up-to-date reliable training materials.

New Editions conceived and is implementing a new approach to employer outreach to improve employer collaboration with public vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies. New Editions designs updated educational materials for employers about recruiting, hiring, retaining and promoting individuals with disabilities. We convene forums for employers and VR counselors to provide first hand information on employment needs in targeted high-growth industries including: banking/finance, service/hospitality, science/technology and healthcare.

New Editions operates the NTAC which serves to coordinate activities and communications among RSA’s Technical Assistance Network members, promotes collaborative activities, identifies experts and resources and provides analysis and evaluation of program data. RSA’s Technical Assistance Network provides training, technical assistance and continuing education to improve the performance of State Vocational Rehabilitation programs.
