The latest statistics indicate that only 5.1% of adults with a learning need are in meaningful employment (NHS Digital, 2021), while close to 65% would like to be. This statistic is both alarming and saddening. Worse still, prior to the Covid19 pandemic statistics showed that over 80% would have liked to be employed.
We wholeheartedly believe that our students and young adults are more than capable of not only gaining and maintaining employment, but also being an incredible asset to any employer. We recognise that to achieve this we need to not only up-skill our students and young adults, but also support employers to become disability confident, so they are able to reap the rewards of an untapped workforce.
Creating Tomorrow College has a clear 5-year development strategy for growth in both student cohort resource and curriculum offer.
The college is based in North Northamptonshire for the 2022/23 academic year.
