Developing Training & Employment Opportunities
for People with Learning Difficulties

As the personalisation agenda develops and gathers pace, it is becoming increasingly important for key workers to have an awareness and understanding of the issues facing service users when undertaking training or work programmes. This course is designed to cover all the main aspects that could arise when planning such a programme. Essentially a practical session on how to prepare and harness people's abilities for work that also builds on the increasing conditionality people face within the benefit system. It will cover:

  • New Proposals for Supporting People with Disabilities via Pathways to Work
  • Volunteering
  • Permitted Work
  • Ideas for Self Employment

Who Should Attend:

Workers responsible for developing employment initiatives for people with learning difficulties, key staff who help develop work-related skills and all advisors involved with personal development and the promotion of independence
