ECL doesn’t just offer home care packages and Sensory Services, as we also provide special work-based training to help build the skills that our customers need for employment.

Throughout the Essex area, we provide workplace training for adults with learning disabilities to help them to hone their skills, improve their employability and open up more opportunities for themselves.

Our workplace training opportunities have long played an invaluable role in helping to build the confidence of our customers and give them a greater sense of independence.  

Valuable work experience within a business

Our work-based training doesn’t just simulate the responsibilities of a job, also providing genuine and valuable time-limited work experience within a business environment.

Time spent with us can be a great launching off point for a myriad of exciting new careers, building a brighter future for all manner of adults with learning disabilities.   

There is a diverse range of vocations in which our service users can choose to gain training, including catering, printing, horticulture, hospitality, conferencing, recycling and packaging.

Our customers can gain customer service experience by providing a range of high-quality products and services to the public at our work-based training sites.

In the process, trainees will gain invaluable experience working with the general public – something that looks great on any CV. The income from these products and services then gets reinvested into the business to help us to keep improving our workplace training services for other customers.
