LearnAbility is a unique new learning program that offers a pathway to employment, through a combined on the job work experience program whilst students gain a nationally recognised statement of attainment. We also customise this program to meet the needs of people with learning difficulties and disabilities.

Learners will complete a short nationally-recognised skill set that may lead to further traineeship opportunities in full qualifications.

Learners have the opportunity to undertake practical work placements in:

  • Hospitality
  • Retail
  • Supply Chain Operations
  • Business Administration

What does the program look like?

  • Four to six weeks on the job learning, with two days per week practical work experience supported by your trainer
  • Induction to the specific industry
  • Completion of a short nationally-recognised skill set
  • Skill development and capability building in small groups designed to secure employment opportunities
  • Small group sessions designed to minimise anxiety, build self-confidence and encourage self-advocacy
