At David Lewis we are committed to supporting young people to prepare for their future and achieve the best possible outcomes. For some this will mean opportunities to undertake work experience and progress to supported employment.
We have lasting partnerships with both local and national companies including Tesco, Oxfam, Booths and most recently a local NHS trust and leading hotel chain, Q Hotels. These employers offer learners real life opportunities to access the working world and develop the skills and confidence they need to make real life choices about their future.
Our inclusive work experience programme is offered to ALL our students. As well as in the community we have a wealth of work experience opportunities on campus, from running the snack trolley and working in the shop and café’s around the site to working with the animals and gardening at Top Farm all these work places offer the familiarity of environment and a safe place to develop communication and social interaction skills
