Employ My Ability

Employ my ability is a Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) provision which provides young people aged 19-25 with the practical opportunity to gain vocational skills and qualifications in a variety of real life working environments, leading to outcomes of gaining employment. We focus on vocational training, accreditation and qualifications that will enable outcomes of a person centred pathway into local community based employment. We offer supported work experience placements with external partners, support with entering the job market and the skills needed for interview and maintaining a vocation. Alongside this we offer an ongoing programme of support for employees and employers once work has been found. This will offer both parties assistance if any difficulties arise at the work place.

Additional Information
We are also looking into the possibilities of self-employment and cooperatives where we would support with start-ups, skill gaps, accounting and operational matters as part of an agency or cooperative. We have a brochure of all the areas people can work and gain qualifications in and this can be sent out upon request. Area covered by Service: Pan Dorset. Costs are funded through educational placements. Social Care placements are available at a day rate. Courses and qualifications depend on the funding stream offered. For further information, please contact or see website. Employmyability is based in the middle of the village of Moreton, in historic Dorset and is on the picturesque site of the old working nursery and kitchen gardens attached to the formal Walled Gardens.
