The This-Ability programme is built around achievement of our Employability Passport.

Stage 1 is where you will start your journey with the This-Ability project. You will attend an 7-week course where you will get involved in various activities that will enable you to build up the core skills you need before going into work. We call these the Core Capabilities and they form the first half of the Employability Passport.

What are the 10 Core Capabilities?

This part of the programme is classroom based, but may include,

  • Outdoor team building
  • Problem solving activities
  • Employer visits
  • Sector specific activities
  • This-Ability Allotment
  • We will always make sure we cater to the different needs of all our participants to make sure all activities are fully inclusive.

    Throughout the 8-weeks, you will work with your mentor to explore different job roles and employment sectors and choose one of our partner organisations to go to for Stage 2 of the programme. Stage 2 develops sector specific employability skills, but you will not move on unless both you and your mentor feel you are ready.
