The This-Ability project engages with learners with a disability/learning disability/difficulty or a long term health/Mental health condition.
Participants on this programme work throuh a 3 stage process;
Stage 1: Ready, Willing and Able – 10 week course covering the 6 core capabilities.
Stage 2: World of Work – The participant will be referred to a training provider who will offer a programme of sector specific training that includes the 7 CBI employability skills to ensure the participant completes the Employability Passport.
Stage 3: Good to Go – In this stage participants will work with a This-Ability Employment Mentor to ensure momentum is maintained when sourcing employment opportunities.
Employability Passport: The employability passport will give our learners something to take away from the programme that will enable them to easily demonstrate the core capabilities and the employability skills to potential employers.
Potential activities can include;
- One to one meetings with mentor
- Completing an Employability Passport
- Classroom activities/learning
- Exploring reasonable adjustments
- Employer visits
