Hereward College and Remploy partner up for the Learning to Work 12 Project

The 'Learning to Work 12 project' is a partnership between Remploy and Hereward College. The partnership is now in its 4th year.
Remploy's mission is to transform the lives of disabled people and those experiencing complex barriers to work by providing sustainable employment opportunities. They believe that work is a key element of an independent and fulfilling life, and that everyone has skills and abilities to offer. They work extensively with people to help them to identify, develop and make the most of their skills and abilities.
In the past, students from Hereward College have spent the first two terms working at the Factory site, completing work experience on the shop floor, Quality, the Cafe and Reception. After Easter they have completed a placement in the community in such places as:
  • University Hospital
  • Coventry City Council
  • Sainsbury`s
  • Curriers Enterprises.
The project has been very successful in the past with some students going on to Employment and Apprenticeships.
The Project receives strong support from the Factory manager Ian MacDonald and his staff.
If you would like to get involved in this project please contact Patrick Fox (Patrick.Fox@hereward.ac.uk), the work experience officer.
