Work Right Programme
Aspire Work Right Programme
The main aim of Work Right is to assist and support people with a learning disability to be prepared and supported into employment.
Our goal is to work in partnership with local organisations to understand the career aspirations of people with a learning disability. This would be identifying their development needs for training and work experience placements and employment opportunities.This will be achieved through job searches and job mapping in the local employment market, arriving at a job match and where appropriate develop customised employment.
Aspire will also assist people in job searches, creating a C.V. and interview skills including any training they require is accredited and fits the purpose, this may also include visits to the employer, work tasters and shadowing.
Aspire understands the barriers people with a learning disability face such as lack of opportunity and discrimination. We can support people to resolve these issues. Aspire will also work with Parents/Carers regarding best interests of the individual. Empowering them to make informed choices about their chosen career path.
Aspire will work closely with local businesses to support employers to maintain work placements and employment opportunities. This includes developing good opportunities with other key organisations such as Connexions, Social Services, Job Centre Plus and the young person’s agency.
This will ensure a positive inclusive approach for individuals to progress successfully into a work environment.
