People with disabilities are top of the class

28 September 2012

The hard work has paid off for 69 people with disabilities from Nottinghamshire who are set to receive certificates for new skills and qualifications.

They are all part of the County Council’s supported employment programme, which gives people with physical or learning disabilities meaningful work.

The courses were paid for by the County Council to help the staff gain more skills for their current jobs and to help them to be more employable in the open job market.

The 69 people are from:

  • the County Council’s three supported employment sites for horticulture and work training, which are based at Skegby, Balderton and Brooke Farm in Linby
  • County Enterprise Foods, which provides meals at home
  • Solutions4Data, which provides a service for transferring information, scanning and Braille

The certificates will be presented by Councillors Kevin Rostance and Stuart Wallace, Chair and Vice Chair of the Adult Social Care and Health Committee at a special reception at County Hall on Tuesday 2 October at 11am. They have been gained in a variety of subjects such as independent living, literacy and numeracy, horticulture and personal development.

Councillor Kevin Rostance, Chair of the Adult Social Care and Health Committee, said: “Congratulations to everyone who has worked hard to gain one of these qualifications, which we believe will give them the skills and experience to help them in their everyday jobs and make them more attractive to any future employees.”

The following people with disabilities have gained qualifications:
