Upcoming Open Days! 16th and 17th April 2024

Our dedicated open days allow you to get a first-hand look at the work we do at EMA and the opportunities we offer young people. Visit either campus in Gillingham or Moreton, and receive a guided tour. Our next open days are coming up in April 2024. If you’re unable to attend, please do get in touch as we are more than happy to accommodate you for a visit throughout the year, and we also offer taster sessions for young people looking to see what attending EMA is like and if it’s right for them!

With sites in Gillingham and Moreton, Employ My Ability provides a unique environment of hospitality, horticultural and retail facilities that help students with learning disabilities and Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) develop vital skills, expertise and confidence. We offer strong vocational qualifications alongside real, hands-on work experience which enables our students to leave us with a clear pathway into employment within the local community.

Education and Adult Social Care are at the heart of EMA, with supported living and day services, all linked to the same environment that students complete their studies. This shared environment between our students, service users, and the public creates two of the most diverse and unique locations in Dorset to serve and support young people and adults.
