Delivered by Kent Supported Employment, our Specialist Employment service provides a range of services from school employability and work experience programs to supporting students and adult jobseekers into work experience, Supported Internships, Supported Apprenticeships, self-employment and paid employment.  We thrive on our specialist knowledge and experience of services for SEND students, other vulnerable learner groups and adults with a disability or disadvantage.

Across Kent and beyond we work with Local Authorities including adult social services, schools, colleges, training providers, Job Centre Plus, employers to professionally support service users with physical/learning difficulties, autism and other barriers. We offer a robust service of direct delivery through the supported employment model, job coaching and independent travel training.

We are the supported employment supplier of choice with Kent Adult Social Services and Health. We are members of BASE (British Association of Supported Employment) and our service is widely regarded within this association as an exemplar of very best practice.
