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.

WECIL are currently running two free employment courses for anyone that identifies as disabled. Please see below for further details about each course, if you would like to know more about either of the courses then please call our friendly tutors to discuss any queries that you may have. 

Better Together 

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.
