Today marks the start of “Learning disabilities work week”. (18 to 22 November 2019). And as you know we work extensively with young people to help get them into the world of work. So here’s some great current examples from our R2W ‘Work & Learn’ team.
R2W Employment Adviser Claire Round: “Karl has started at a local garage in the Furness area where during his first few days he has assisted with removing and replacing a radiator in a Nissan. He is learning how to complete this process, clean the components and repair it ready to fit back in. He is really enjoying his placement.”
Meanwhile here is Dom enjoying a wood work craft activity supported by R2W Job coach Sarah. “We arranged this to support his career goals, Dom wants to work in the care sector. Dom enjoyed creating as well as helping others to complete their projects.”
And up in Carlisle we have Kieron who has been proper ‘busted’ as a Gallery Assistant at Tullie House Museum. He has divided his time between the Roman Gallery & the Border Gallery plus the Exhibition Area which currently is running a Turner & Rembrandt exhibition! R2W Employment Tutor Jim Thorburn: “Our Supported Internship team in Carlisle established a link with Tullie House and got Kieron a job placement as a Gallery Assistant. He assists in the Museum wherever he is required and in a very short period of time has become something of an expert on Carlisle’s Roman history as well as that of the Reivers and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Kieron has thrived in the atmosphere of Tullie House and loves helping visitors and colleagues alike.”
