Joint Employability Programme

Last October, we were contacted by Linwood High School to ask if we could assist with providing work experience for 2LHS pupils with physical disabilities. We were delighted to assist and we had a young lady called Shannon for 9 weeks and subsequently in February we had a young gentleman called Kyle, both of the students were fantastic. Our secretary then raised this issue with the CEO of Engage Renfrewshire our TSI as these were not the only pupils concerned. We discovered that disabled children up and down the country were facing the same problem.

Morven felt very passionate about the problems faced by the students, that it led to being raised at various meetings.   The result has been that Renfrewshire Poverty Commission has now taken this on board and have funded the panel to provide adaptions, training and access audits for 10 work experience places for children from Kersland School and Mary Russell School’s both the schools are in Paisley. We have currently found 8 placements for the children and adaptions are being installed.

At the present time the 2 charities involved in providing work experience are ourselves and the Environmental Training Team (ETT). This is an amazing project working in co-production with the Poverty Commission, Engage Renfrewshire, ETT and Renfrewshire Access Panel and we are looking forward to the induction day which we are holding in our office soon.
