The Steps to Work programme at Strawberry Field is a 12 to 18-month scheme that offers young adults with learning disabilities and other barriers to employment the opportunity to gain skills and work experience. Steps to Work consists of an 8-week work readiness course, followed by 3 different 3-month work placements. These placements include 2 days per week of vocational training and 2 days per week in a work environment to move young people into employment or meaningful volunteering.
The trainees are based at our Strawberry Field training hub in the centre of the historic grounds where John Lennon played as a child. The structured programme comprises classroom-based life skills learning, specialised sector training and work experience, allowing trainees to develop their employability and prepare themselves to look for paid employment.
