Propel training (Workplace) has been developed to drive inclusion supporting young people (14-24) with learning disabilities into employment. With only 5.1% of people with a learning disability in employment Propel training aims to reverse this through the provision of a support programme that can be embedded into the workplace. This training provides delegates (workplace mentors) with the tools; skills and practical know how to embed the principles of Propel within their work setting. They are equipped to become workplace mentors; handholding and nurturing new recruits with learning disabilities supporting them thrive in their new role through day-to-day support and guidance.
