Employability and National Grid

On Friday I attended a promotional party for Emloyability. This scheme, sponsored by National Grid as participating employer, helps people who have faced learning difficulties to enter the business as interns, with mentoring and support. After one year they may gain a job at National Grid, or may be better placed to win a job elsewhere. They are working with Addington School.

The scheme has done great work already, helping build confidence, improve skills and assist people into full time employment. I was impressed by its architects and sponsors, and by the presentation on what can be achieved. I urge others to join in.
