To download : PDF (1.8 KiB)
The Engine Shed was established in 1989 as an innovative training project for young people with learning disabilities, to help them improve their confidence, learn transferable skills in a real work environment and move into paid employment within mainstream workplaces. It has achieved these objectives through operating several training ‘workshops’ which provide a
working and learning environment for the trainees – centred on a vegetarian café, organic bakery, organic tofu production and conference/catering service. The Engine Shed has been extremely successful, consistently moving 80% of trainees into paid employment.
