Here at St. John’s we believe that everyone is employable, and we are proud to be part of the changing culture around people with learning disabilities being in work.

One of the key outcomes for our learners is employability, and we include work experience placements as part of our learners’ curriculum from year one and throughout.

Work experience programme

Our work experience programme covers a wide range of industries to suit all of our learners varied aspirations and we encourage students to take part in as many different sessions as they would like.

We have formed invaluable partnerships with leading businesses in the city who offer a realistic, supportive and individualized environment in which our young people can learn transferable employability skills as well as being mentored in their chosen industry.
