COVID-19: latest update on how our services are affected and the support available

Supported employment

The Supported Employment programme is a targeted programme for people between 16 -and 30 who have additional support needs.

Our dedicated Supported Employment team work with participants on a one to one basis, developing tailored programme's to meet individual needs. The programme helps participants to gain confidence, resilience and determination to move into employment or further education.

Supported Employment - Tailored Jobs Scheme

Since 2019, to enhance the Supported Employment programme, we have created a range of tailored, part-time jobs. These jobs have been specifically created for young people participating in the programme who are ready to progress into the world of work.

Our team work with colleagues across the council to create job opportunities specifically designed to suit each individual young person's circumstances. The jobs are designed around the skills, interests and capabilities of the young person, who is supported throughout by a dedicated Employability and Skills Officer.
