Employment support

We are committed to supporting disabled people to find and sustain work if they have the capacity to do so. Our approach is to work on removing the barriers to employment and engaging with employers to raise awareness of the contribution disabled people can make.

Better Together 

WECIL will be delivering a new pre-employment course from October 2018.

Along with Community Learning West, WECIL has developed a pre-employment course with a difference, this is a course for anyone who identifies as disabled including hidden disabilities such as mental health conditions and dyslexia.  Better Together is for those who are on their first steps of their journey back into employment or learning and will concentrate on building confidence and improving wellbeing.

Better Together is a 5 week course and will be run from various locations around Bristol – in fact if you have a room and think this would be of benefit to your service users please contact Alison Browning about running a course at your centre.

The first two courses will take place at:

  • Where? St Paul’s Learning Centre, 94 Grosvenor Road, Bristol, BS2 8XJ
  • When? Every Tuesday starting 16th October – Tuesday 13th November (excluding Tuesday 31st Oct) 2018, 10am – 2pm
  • Where? Knowle Library, Broadwalk Shopping Centre, Knowle, Bristol, BS4 2QU
