Workwise engages with service users at any stage in their individual journey to recovery, which follows the NIACE (National Institute of Adult Continued Education) plan through training, volunteering and employment.
Work-based training offers the individual the opportunity to engage in a genuine work environment, use appropriate business communication and procedures, build confidence and work stamina and learn new technology and skills that are used in today's workplaces. This is an opportunity that most individuals without work would never expect to be able to access, so this is your opportunity!
"I get a great deal out of coming to Workwise - working with other people in an environment that is not too stressful... I'm learning new skills and hope I have gained confidence. At first I was very anti-technology, but now look forward to learning how to work the various machines concerned with my department."
Work-based training can lead you into a wide variety of jobs, training courses and other opportunities to improve your skills – enabling you to move on towards community integration and a working life. Start in one of these departments and you will be surprised where it may lead:
|Textile & Craft Area||Technology Processes - CAD & CAM||Woodwork Department||IT & Business Administration|
Where would you like to start?
Workwise also delivers a variety of Training Courses that you can do alongside your work-based training, and when you feel ready to progress towards getting a job, Worklink is a specialist employment team ready to help you.
Individuals will need to be referred by their Care Co-ordinator to access any Workwise/Worklink programme. The service can be paid for using Personal Budgets and through Direct Payments or it can be self-financed.
