Job description

The Work Placement Coach will work alongside staff at The Old School Project to identify a wide range of work placement opportunities for adults with Autism, matching clients to work experience opportunities at the Old School.

The Old School Project is based at a Grade 2 listed building in Old Wolverton, and offers work placements to a wide range of people who need extra support on their journey towards paid employment. The building has three separate enterprises operating within it - a community centre, community café and 3 bedroomed Guest House - and work placements are offered within all enterprises, and in supporting the core functions of IT, marketing and adminstration. 

This role has been made possible thanks to funding from the Social Enterprise Fund, itself supported by the National Lottery Community Fund. Future Wolverton will be working alongside partner organisation Track who specialise in supporting adults with Autism to access work placements and paid work.  

The Old School building is owned by Future Wolverton, a membership based Community Benefit Society, that has a mission to establish Wolverton as a thriving and sustainable town within the city of Milton Keynes.   We do this by enabling an active and involved community to protect and celebrate the unique heritage of the Town, whilst developing new business, housing and community facilities to ensure future prosperity.
