Lolly Production Trainee Programme
In our 2022 season we developed and piloted our very own Lolly Production Trainee Programme
This collaborative programme offered paid part-time work over 2 months, created with the participants and individualized to their needs, learning goals and skills. It was open to those who face barriers in the workforce because of a hidden health condition or disability. It focused on developing skills in food hygiene, production and packaging, offering access to a level 2 certified qualification, as well as development opportunities in other areas of business. We provided support in work readiness, getting into a work-day routine, building confidence, facilitating positive conversations around access to work and reasonable adjustments, building a CV with practical work experience and supporting individuals to thrive in a workplace environment in this paid traineeship.
A total of 4 individuals from our local community have benefitted from this scheme in 2022. Read more about the programme and what our fabulous trainees had to say about the experience in our Impact Report [link to follow]
We are hoping to roll out this opportunity to more trainees during our next season
