Our programme at The Hive is designed  to encourage  young  adults with additional needs into work.

Work Placements in a variety of sectors are sourced so that students can be job matched correctly to benefit all concerned.

Students will attend work placement for one day per week for a period of approximately six weeks to enable them to gain valuable experience that they can then take with them when moving on into the world of work.

All students are supported in the work place by our qualified staff who are there to promote independence in the job role and help them to integrate fully into the working environment. They are also on hand to provide support and advice to employers to make the work experience positive for all involved.

Work placements are very successful as they offer the opportunity for employers to see if the student is right for their company before offering them employment.

Over the years we have seen many of our students leave us to go into paid employment, apprenticeships, further and higher education and volunteering roles.
