Work Active: Supporting the "forgotten learners" in their journey to work (2019)
The aim of the Work Active project is to develop a practice framework for an internship-based employment training programme for people with an intellectual disability. The intention is to develop a learning programme that combines a classroom component with workplace experience (in the form of an internship). Importantly, this project sets out to develop a teaching and learning model and toolkit based on a collaborative approach that maximises the potential for sustainable employment outcomes for people with an intellectual disability. This includes the development of a set of resources that meet the learning needs of adults with an intellectual disability to help build confidence and motivation, develop job specific skills, together with a range of soft skills. In addition, it is hoped that the toolkit developed for this project will be integrated into on-going services of SkillWise and similar service providers.
