Community and Employers making a Difference
Billing Aquadrome are now working in partnership with Billing Brook Academy Trust, based in Lumbertubs, Northampton, offering employability placements for students with learning disabilities.
We are committed to bringing employers and education providers together aiming to transform lives.
Statistics tell us that only 6% of people with learning disabilities are in paid employment, yet according to Mencap 65% would like to work. Supported Internships are the bridge to making this happen.
This partnership shares Billing Brook’s vision of education being all about ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ and equality of opportunity for all in the community.
Billing Aquadrome are delighted to be in partnership with Billing Brook and thoroughly enjoy sharing time and knowledge with the students. We hope the workplace experience will prepare the students for future employment and we wish them success.
