Vocational work-based training

About us

ECL Clacton ensures that your support needs are met in a personalised and flexible way so that you can live as independently as possible in your local community. We're here to help you have the choice and control to enjoy living life the way you choose.

Support programmes are tailored to your individual needs and personal goals. Our Trusted Assessors will help you to develop your own plan when you begin with ECL and our care team will support you step by step throughout the journey to follow that plan and reach your goals.

Vocational Work-Based Training

Here we offer vocational work-based training as an option to help build your knowledge, skills and confidence. Supported by our friendly care team, we'll help you gain valuable work-based experience that will give you opportunity for paid employment in the future.

Within the centre we have ECL Gardening - Clacton and ECL Cafe - Clacton, two fully functioning enterprises which teach skills within catering, cookery, horticulture and gardening.

Your experience with our work-based training services will start by meeting one of our Trusted Assessors who will support you to set goals for the future. We'll work with you on this and help develop a programme to get you there.

As you progress through our programme you'll be gaining new skills and working towards your hopes for the future.

Pricing

Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
