SES (Specialist Employability Support) Programme
We are delighted to be working in partnership with the DWP (Department of Work and Pensions) to provide people with a visual impairment with the skills, training and confidence to find permanent employment.
RNC SES is not like other employment programmes. A team of experts in visual impairment and employment will work with you every step of the way to help you find a permanent job.
We will help you develop the skills you need to succeed, put you in touch with employers who recognise what you have to offer and support you every step of the way. We will discuss your experience to date, the barriers you have found in seeking employment and the type of work you want to do.
We will work with you to design a flexible package using experts at RNC and in your home area to help you achieve your goals. The programme will last up to 12 months, many customers stay at RNC in Hereford on a residential basis while completing the training, with accommodation and subsidised food provided. Our campus is fully accessible and guide dogs are welcome.
You may want to consider training in a new field through one of our specialist vocational training courses, including the opportunity to undertake hands-on work in a real-life setting to enhance your CV and employability. You will have the opportunity to try a range of assistive technology to find the right working medium for your personal needs, which you can then use when you enter employment.
The programme is best suited for those seeking intensive support, potentially including mobility and living skills training.
Please make an appointment with your DEA (Disability Employment Adviser) or Work Coach to discuss your application and eligibility in more detail. It is important that when you meet with the job centre you specify RNC (The Royal National College for the Blind) as your choice of provider if this is an important factor for you.
Start dates will vary, depending on your chosen training course, and can be based on individual need. We welcome questions from potential SES customers, DEAs and Work Coaches. If you would like to discuss individual circumstances prior to referral, please call us on 01432 376 621.
