Vocational work-based training

About us

ECL Saffron Walden 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 choice and control to enjoy living life in the way you choose.

Individual programmes are tailored to your individual needs and personal goals.

Our Trusted Assessors will help you to develop your own plan and our support workers, that have received training in systematic instruction, 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 within our training enterprises which will 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.

There are three fully functioning training enterprises in and outside the Day Centre, teaching skills dedicated to the catering, carpentry and printing sectors.

ECL Cafe - Saffron Walden is a welcoming place that gives practical modular training in food preparation and hospitality, while our printing service. ECL Print - Saffron Walden provides work-based training in printing, design and reprographics. ECL Carpentry - Saffron Walden is our on-site training workshop which includes high quality garden furniture, toys, kindling and made to order wooden goods for sale to the general public.

Your experience within any of 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 set a programme to get you there. As you work 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.
