Since September 2010 we have been in partnership with Thanet College (now East Kent College) and Kent Supported Employment to provide adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to experience real work in an NHS environment which incorporates ‘on the job’ learning and increases their employability skills.
As part of NHS England’s 5 Year Forward View we wanted to build upon this and enlisted the support of Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey and Sussex’s (HEE KSS) Intellectual Disabilities Programme.
As a result we signed up to the Learning Disability Pledge.
A report was published in April 2018 to highlight all the good work done so far with our partners, with a view that it can start to raise awareness of how organisations can support those with a learning disability within their workplace.
