Accommodations and Assistive Technology in COE Products and Services

The Center for Organizational Effectiveness (COE) strives to ensure equal access to the products and services that we offer for all State employees with and without disabilities.

COE has assistive technology available to provide accessibility services during the classes that we offer. Available accessibility services include, but are not limited to:

  • American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters
  • Assistance for Visual Accommodation
  • Written course materials

To best meet reasonable accommodation needs, participants should notify COE by phone at (303) 866-2439 or by email Contact COE to let us know about the need for accommodation, at the time of class registration, including the specific assistive technology and/or other accommodations.

The request should include:

  • Participant Name
  • Class Name
  • Class Dates
  • Class format, online or classroom
  • Preferred accommodation(s), if known

Participant agencies are responsible for the cost of assistive technology and/or other reasonable accommodations that are required by the participant. The cost of accommodations will be billed to the Participant Agency in the same manner as billing for the class tuition.

COE will coordinate with contracted vendors and the requesting participant to provide reasonable accommodations.

COE will make every effort to provide requested reasonable accommodations, however, failure to notify COE of requested accommodations at least 3 business days prior to the class date may result in delay or denial of the accommodation.

Building Work-Based Learning Programs in Your Agency

The Work-Based Learning Playbook is meant to provide HR professionals with a full understanding of Experienced-Based Apprenticeships and how they work within the state personnel system, including how to create them, how they’re launched and managed, and how to find additional information and resources about apprenticeships. This playbook is meant to serve as an intermediary step for agencies that don’t have the current ability to implement the structure required for the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment’s (CDLE) Registered Apprenticeship Program and still want to introduce experience-based work and learning opportunities.

Competency Guide

The purpose of the Statewide Competency model is to provide a structure that agencies in the State of Colorado can use to design, complete, and measure learning and development experiences for teams and individuals. These competencies were developed based on analysis of common knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors that support success at three levels of organizational performance: workforce competencies, leadership competencies, and senior leader competencies.

This document is designed to:

  • Help identify and modify performance requirements based on competencies necessary for success in positions at different levels throughout the state.
  • Provide a structure to account for differences in level of proficiency required for these competencies.
  • Define the competencies and provide a description of performance at each level of proficiency.
  • Identify specific courses that can be completed to increase performance for teams and individuals.
