For adults with learning disabilities and Autism with ambitions of gaining paid work, the Inclusive Employment programme will enhance the opportunities available to you; by identifying possible employers, developing CVs, arranging and mediating interviews, offering skills development, work experience and on-the-job coaching.
ECL’s team of Inclusive Employment Consultants work with individuals to develop their skills, confidence, and work experience in order for them to be able to realise their career ambitions.
All of the adults that we support through Inclusive Employment benefit from:
- Bespoke career guidance and support including vocational profiling
- Vocational and accredited qualifications
- Work experience placements based on an individual’s interests. So far, we have placed our candidates into horticultural, facilities management, care, retail and hospitality settings, ensuring they are equipped with the skills they need to begin their career.
On attaining employment, we provide support for both employees and employers for as long as required, to ensure a successful outcome for both parties.
We’re pleased to announce that our Inclusive Employment Service has been awarded the Supported Employment Quality Framework (SEQF) kite mark grading of ‘good provider’ following it’s very first audit.
Supports adults with learning disabilities and or Autism to achieve their aspirations of paid employment.
We strive to encourage employers both regionally and nationally to realise the benefits of becoming an Inclusive Employer.

It has been great to give Ellen the opportunity of employment, she is more than capable of doing the job and it’s reassuring to know that both Ellen and myself have the back-up from ECL if needed, I would definitely recommend inclusive employment to other employers.
