At Brooke Farm we focus on our trainees gaining relevant work based skills and achieving goals in our newly refurbished café, shop, garden centre, our plant nursery and Pick Your Own fruit farm. We support our Hub Trainees to gain relevant transferrable skills in a real, safe, working environment where we focus on individual needs, strengths and goals, working towards sustainable employment. The programme lasts from 18 months to up to 3 years depending on the individual and outcomes of our regular reviews.
Hub Trainees will gain experience whilst learning new skills in a practical real life work setting with some more traditional group and individual learning taking place on site in a tailored and fun way to support the practical skills, for example to work in our shop or café our Hub Trainees will be required to complete their Level 1 Food Hygiene training.
There are a number of areas where our Hub Trainees can gain experience and learn new skills including Horticulture, Retail, and Customer Service and Hospitality in our shop, garden centre and café, all aspects of food preparation and storage in our food preparation areas and café kitchen as well as Administration in our office.
Our Hub Trainees will also learn skills through our employability programme, which includes all aspects of the application process including writing a CV, job readiness and preparing for interviews.
As well as our Brooke Farm site at Linby we also have a smaller site at Balderton in Newark where the focus is on Horticulture.
This fantastic opportunity to learning a fun and vibrant real life workplace environment is open to anyone with a learning disability or ASD who is aged eighteen plus, living within Nottinghamshire County (excluding City) and is able to commit to a minimum of 3 days each week and that you are dedicated, enthusiastic and really want to work!
