The exploration of career goals is a natural part of youth development, yet this period is often delayed and even bypassed for many young people who experience psychosis. Further, how can a career come to fruition without the corresponding educational attainment? Thus, focusing on supported education (Sed), as part of career development and recovery is an essential next step in early intervention. The Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Model is the most evidenced-based model of supported employment. Accordingly, testing the integration of Sed within this model has merit. At IEPA 10 in Milan, Italy an international pilot study was formed to assess the feasibility and validity of an integrated fidelity scale for supported employment and education (SEE) using the current IPS fidelity scale. This symposium will, first, report on the preliminary results of this collaboration including the successes and challenges. Second, it will report on potential reasons for poorer outcomes using IPS for Sed, validity issues regarding the adapted integrated scale, and possibilities for improving validity. Third, it will describe the coordination of the international collaboration between Norway, The Netherlands, Australia, Iceland, the U. K., Germany, Chile and the U. S. while navigating different public policy and regulations. Finally, this symposium aims to highlight the importance of collaboration to improve career outcomes and recovery in first episode psychosis. To conclude, there will be a discussant period at the end exploring future directions of Sed and relevant clinical needs to help youth effectively reach their career goals.
