Disability and learning

If you are looking for information on apprenticeships or you want to know what training is available to you, the sections below aim to help you.

The Enham Trust

Enham Trust provides specific information and services for anyone with a disability, including available training and opportunities for employment.

Visit Enham's website for further information on their services

Please also visit the Education and Learning pages for details of learning opportunities within the borough.


Getting paid while you learn might sound too good to be true, but as an apprentice you really do get the best of both worlds. And, while you're studying for your qualifications, you'll be able to get hands-on work experience.

To be an apprentice you need to be 16 or over, living in England and not in full-time education.

Find out how apprenticeships could work for you on the Apprenticeships website.

Disability Rights UK have written a guide for disabled people, parents and carers about applying for apprenticeships in England which deals common questions and features stories written by disabled apprentices about their experiences.
