We are pleased to be working with Petroc College on their Internship programme, this offers a work placement for their students with additional support needs. The students come to learn all about working in a busy Joiner’s shop or in the fabrication department, there’s also opprtunites to learn administration duties. Once the internship programme is finished then hopefully we can offer the students work. In the UK
only 6% of young adults with learning disabilities get paid work and in Devon that falls to 4%, so the work we offer is of vital importance to the local community, at present our success rate is 100% of interns being employed by ourselves.
Moving towards the future we will be taking more interns in September 2016 and hopefully work placements being offered in July 2017.
All items produced and sold create funds to carry on our employemnt success.
