Knowsley Council
Post 19 Transition Programme – Social Enterprise/Progression into Employment
None
Knowsley Council are seeking a provider who can deliver a programme one day a week (Wednesdays, 10:00am to 4:00pm) for 36 weeks to a group of up to 10 learners who have learning difficulties and /or disabilities. The programme is to be delivered as an integral part of 5 day provision with other providers delivering on the other four days. This will form part of a two year programme and we expect to commission the second year in April/May 2013.
 
The core element of the programme will be Employability Skills, leading to Work Experience, Work Placement and Supported Employment. There will also be a requirement to establish some form of social enterprise that will provide opportunities for the young people to gain work experience.  It is anticipated that the social enterprise will be able to generate an income which will support the provision of work experience in future years.
 
The successful provider will be expected to involve local employers in this aspect of the programme and find work placements and supported employment for some of the learners on the programme.
