Way to Work

Overview

The Way to Work Programme assists persons with disability to strengthen or gain additional skills for employability. The aim is to complement other services / programmes in the sector in order to ensure that persons with disability feel more confident to seek employment and live more independently.

 

Topics covered during this training programme include:

  • independent living skills
  • employability
  • boundaries at the workplace
  • hygiene
  • sexual health
  • boundaries
  • use of public transport
  • how to present oneself with confidence during an interview

 

These sessions are also delivered with the contribution of other third parties and professionals specialising in a number of areas. Participants are also exposed to site visits at workplaces to gain more hands-on experience and insight on different job options and sectors.

 

One-to-one sessions are also provided to service users seeking employment or who are already in employment and require some extra assistance in a particular area such as writing a CV, money management, job-seeking skills and hands on practice such as office work skills.​

 

Way to Work also offers information sessions to parents and guardians aimed at promoting the benefits of employment and how persons with disabilities can be supported to enter the workforce and sustain employment.
