We have recently worked closely with our colleagues at the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities to develop the When I Grow Up (WIGU) tool kit and workshop resources for schools. 

WIGU was a four-year programme run by the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities and funded by the Big Lottery Fund, which aimed to increase work expectations, aspirations and opportunities for students with learning disabilities at three schools and colleges in West Berkshire, Kent and the London Borough of Redbridge.

As part of this programme we developed a Handbook for Teachers. This consists of three main elements:

  • 10 session plans
  • Resources (including exercises, instructions and activity sheets)
  • Work profile

The programme is delivered as a series of 10 workshops which are designed to supplement the existing employment-focused activity at school, while also developing a conversation with families and engagement from employers. The work profile is to be completed during session nine, using information gathered during the activities and conversations that took place over the course of a programme. Session 10 offers an opportunity for the student to prepare and present their skills, qualities, preferences and support needs.
