Medway Council Commissions Kent Supported Employment Project

The Specialist Employment Service at The Education People is delighted to have been commissioned by Medway Council to undertake a new pilot project that will support residents with learning disabilities or autism to find employment.

The council has commissioned to provide tailored support to 60 residents, over the age of 16, to support them whilst finding paid employment, work placements, supported apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities which will lead to employment.

The Specialist Employment Service (Kent Supported Employment) will also work with businesses and offer support and advice on employing people with learning disabilities and autism, to ensure they remain supported in the workplace.

Commenting on the recent commission, Alicia Moyles, Head of Service for Specialist Employment (KSE) says:

"We are delighted to be supporting Medway residents to move into employment. Our proven track record throughout Kent enables us to support the residents to meet their full potential by exploring their skills and abilities using professional career guidance and supported employment principles. Our offer to employers ensures they are able to access a new talent pool of employees to embed within their workplace, through job coaching, job carving and ongoing support."
