Work Based Training from ECL

ECL runs Work Based Training sites across the county that provide time-limited vocational training that enable adults with learning disabilities to gain knowledge, skills and confidence enhancing their opportunities for employment in the future. 

Our sites specialise in the following industry sectors:

  • Catering
  • Conferences and hospitality
  • Recycling and packaging
  • Horticulture
  • Printing

The teams work closely with colleagues in education and children’s services to ensure a smooth transition from schools into our services. 

The Work Based Training sites also offer high quality, excellent value products and services for sale direct to the general public. This allows our trainees to not only develop skills in that specific sector but also in customer services, gaining a valuable insight into working with the general public, a key factor for future employment.

All income generated by the Work Based Training sites is reinvested into the businesses to improve the services on offer to trainees.
