On our picturesque grounds, students learn important horticultural skills alongside real customers.
Employ My Ability is based at The Walled Garden, Moreton; our unique environment hosts onsite catering and horticulture facilities that help students with learning disabilities and special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to gather vital skills, expertise and confidence. We offer strong vocational qualifications alongside real life work-experience which enables our students to leave with a clear pathway into employment. Our students engage with personal timetables and work alongside our tutor-trained industry professionals to develop an understanding of the required workplace skills. Following the Employ My Ability Curriculum, students also have access to a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Students regularly interact with customers and develop essential social and communication skills. Our students complete tasks that are relevant, worthwhile and have real outcomes for the development of their own learning.
The team and I welcome your interest and encourage you to visit and see the first-hand benefits and opportunities we offer.
The Walled Garden
The Walled Garden is our happy place situated in the wonderful countryside between Dorchester and Wareham. The horticultural garden is an important part of the culture in Employ My Ability and it serves as the setting for social and practical exercises. We have 5 polytunnels for propagation, organised by our horticultural department, it is open to the public. The centre provides excellent opportunities for our students to hone their landscaping skills by working with plants and shrubs and receiving ongoing landscaping training.
