The service supports disabled people who need support to enter work or undertake work-related courses and activities.
Our SES service is for disabled clients in need of personal support and expertise to move them towards and into employment.
SES Start Back is a short-term provision (up to 3 months) for those customers who after receiving some specialist support could be ready to move into work or another provision.
SES Main Provision provides access to more intensive employability support and is intended for those customers who may require a longer journey to overcome multiple or more complex barriers to employment.
To be eligible you need to be able to meet the following criteria:
You must not currently be in employment.
You will need to be referred to the programme via a Disability Employment Advisor (DEA) at your local Jobcentre Plus. Although, some referrals can also be made from other routes such as SRO’s (Statutory Referral Organisation).
Once we receive a referral we will contact you to arrange a Start-Up meeting. We prefer to do this face to face and this can take place in the closest available location to you.
Portland College is delivering SES as part of a special purpose vehicle, Steps to Employment Ltd – this is a partnership of three organisations St. Loye’s Foundation, Enham Trust and Portland College.
