Skill Development

We help people reach their potential by giving opportunities to learn in a supportive work environment where people understand disability but focus on ability.

We focus on developing skills regarding individual’s roles and responsibilities in the workplace. We work to encourage people to feel valued and reduce social isolation.

How do we do this?

We continually assess individuals development within the work environment and tailor each individuals program to focus on the development of core skills including:

  • Planning and organising
  • Teamwork
  • Communication skills
  • Literacy and numeracy
  • Self-awareness
  • Confidence
  • Decision making

We formally recognise individuals development through the ASDAN Awards System. It offers programmes and qualifications that explicitly grow skills for learning, employment and life. ASDAN is an awarding body well recognised and approved by bodies including SQA and UCAS and is used in over 30 countries throughout the world.

As a registered centre we have chosen to adopt the WorkRight programme which formalises and develops basic employability skills.

WorkRight develops and improves existing employability skills. It has been designed to be carried out in a workplace setting. Its units focus on what an employer looks for in an employee:

  • Punctuality and reliability
  • Working well with others
  • Completing tasks safely to the required standards
  • Appreciating roles and responsibilities
