    Traineeship programme

    Mission: Act as a stepping stone to mainstream employment

    • Fair Shot will hire 50% of its staff with learning disabilities 
    • Our café will provide employment opportunities through a traineeship programme for those in the community with a learning disability and who are interested in the hospitality sector.  
    • This will be an individually tailored and flexible solution to unemployment, helping them develop their workplace skills and engage with their community. All while being in an inclusive and safe environment.
    • This programme will give them practical experience and help them develop transferrable skills across a whole range of catering and hospitality operations including customer service skills, barista skills, food preparation and till system.

  • Will's story

    ''My name is Will Goold and I am 20 years old. I am currently an apprentice at West London

    College. Last year I was on the Hammersmith and Fulham /Loreal supported internship scheme. The main objective of the scheme was to get paid work. As part of this scheme I worked for Nandos.

     

    The staff at Nandos Hammersmith were very supportive. They welcomed me and encouraged me, I felt valued and treated like a proper employee. My Job Coach Louisa guided me in my work role then reduced the guidance as my confidence and skills grew, my teacher Rachel, helped me with my social awareness and personal development. Whilst at Nandos I developed skills and knowledge needed in the workplace, and in fact I achieved paid employment and was offered paid employment by Nandos Chiswick.

     

    My experiences on the internship, gaining paid employment and now on the apprenticeship have made me develop a real sense of responsibility not just at work but in my personal life as well.''
