In our 15,000sq ft factory unit we give REAL work experience manufacturing and warehousing ACTUAL products. Through the contracts we have with regional businesses we are able to train the candidates to use relevant and actual processes on standard equipment.People coming through The Employability Trust’s work experience programme build confidence, learn skills such as time keeping, team work and communication skills and receive support to find and secure long term employment.
It is a no-pressure environment which gently builds up people up to working full time allowing the candidate to grow and adapt to the needs of a modern working environment.
Alongside our non-traditional work experience programme we also offer a variety of qualifications suitable to the needs of the individual. This may be an award in Employability Skills or Health and Safety Awareness, a Traineeship or skills such as a fork lift drivers licence. Each person is assessed and the training tailored to their specific needs and wants ensuring the best result for the individual.
