CheckIn Works and Giraffe Trading offer personal support, work experience and vocational and employability training. Placements are provided through their Perth-based social enterprise that can assist individuals with significant barriers to entering a work environment. The organisation helps individuals to make the steps towards work, mainstream volunteering or onto other college or sector courses that will help develop their careers further.
Work experience placements are currently available in catering & hospitality with the addition of outdoor and other learning activities that focus on socialisation and inclusion. The provision of accredited training is offered in-house through a virtual platform, with staff support. Trainees progress through a journey of work, life and learning with the emphasis on building work skills, confidence and inclusion
