The This-Ability project engages with learners (18 - 29) with a disability/learning disability/difficulty or a long term health/Mental health condition and supports them to prepare for work and learning.
Working for Health specialises in preparing people for careers in the health and social care sector. In addition, learners develop the 7 CBI employability skills and complete the Employability Passport.
Learners start their journey with the Humber Learning Consortium, which deliver a 10 week course covering the 6 core capabilities: reliability: openness; awareness of the labour market; resilience; self-esteem and motivation. Participants will be provided with a mentor who will support them throughout their journey.
At 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. Training organisations include: Hull FC sports sector; Goodwin Development Trust for the creative and digital sector; Hull KR for retail, warehousing, catering.
If they wish to work in Health and Social care, they will come to Working for Health and in addition to the CBI sills, they will study the Care Standards and have the opportunity for work experience placement in their chosen area. Providing them with the experience and knowledge to successfully gain a place in further learning or find work in the health and social care sector.
