Who is this for?
- People who are aged 16 years old and older with a learning disability and/or learning difficulties and not in education, training or work
The Employability Fund programme allows people with learning disabilities and or learning difficulties to develop the skills and experience necessary to progress through the employability pipeline.
Trainers will provide additional support and knowledge around moving into work and what that might involve. You will develop the core and basic skills required to make a successful transition, whilst being supported to the difficulties you are facing.
All students will take part in a community impact project and at stage 3 a placement in a workplace environment (if COVID-19 guidance permits). The aim of this is for you to experience a workplace environment first hand and gain the knowledge and confidence to apply for a job/other positive destination towards the end of the course.
The course is currently delivered on Zoom, two days a week for 10 weeks.
