Worklink

Description

Worklink offers work-based training and supported employment and training. Worklink can help create CV and cover letters, offer one-to-one support in the workplace and with ongoing support thereafter. Worklink also provides sheltered training and work-based learning for adults, who, at present, can not access open employment, but are gaining those skills.

At present, 163 adults access the Worklink service across the two sites either as a student obtaining an in-house qualification, or undertaking supported employment or undertaking work-based training.

The service has an in-house Employment Skills training programme teaching health and safety, preparation for work, and life skills. An in-house certificate is presented on completion of the training.

All students undergo a person-centered work appraisal. An exit review is arranged on completion of the in-house qualification.

Covid-19 has meant our bases have not been open, but we are supporting people in the community, and support remains within the workplace.
