Paid work experience for students in Essex with learning difficulties and disabilities.

Realistic Opportunities for Supported Employment (ROSE) helps people over 25 with learning difficulties and disabilities get the most out of paid work placements. The programme recognises that most people with learning difficulties see paid employment as one of their main goals in adult life. The benefits are much more than financial and include building social skills, self-esteem, confidence and independence.

The Traffic Light support system:

Job coaches use the Traffic Light system at the monthly assessments, with levels of support gradually decreasing when the time is right. Here's an example of how the system is used to recommend varying support levels.

Red - The Job Coach stays with the student constantly. They provide support on a one-to-one basis and complete Session Review Sheets.

Orange - The Job Coach is with the student for half of the working shift and completes Monthly Review Sheets.

Green - The Job Coach visits the employer and student every week for four weeks. This reduces to visits every three months for up to one year, to ensure everything runs smoothly.
