“Sadly, less than seven per cent of young people with learning disabilities make the transition from education downtown atlanta hotels into paid employment. downtown atlanta hotels We have a duty to challenge that statistic and this experience empowers those young people to seek employment. By their final year most students have completed their academic studies so the placement gives them real work experience.”

I spoke at length with Anne who was running an information session and wanted to invite education establishments to come and learn about the project. I got in touch with some Ealing schools and colleges, and also sent information to Richmond.
“There was a lot of interest and during 2012 we had some meetings at Ealing, Hammersmith downtown atlanta hotels and West London College (EHWLC). The staff were interested and we explored funding to find a business partner.
“By summer 2013 it was clear that EHWLC and Ealing Mencap could count on support from the borough if we had a business partner. We let Anne and the Project Search team know we were keen to launch a project.
“The programme is important to our students as it offers them a pathway into an ordinary life with independence, choices, a chance for a social life with colleagues, a career path, and a future where they are not dependent on benefits. It opens doors and gives them a chance they could not have hoped for without the scheme.
“Hospitality is a particularly good area in that there are many practical skills required which lend themselves to the kind of systematic instruction that allows people with learning disabilities to show and develop their potential. The hotel staff have been particularly welcoming and keen to engage with the students, downtown atlanta hotels and everyone is really keen to make the whole thing work, so we have high hopes.”
