Here is Wayne's story about his JobSense journey

What has Laura's JobSense journey been?


What is JobSense?

JobSense uses Specialist Employment Advisers to support people with a sensory loss across Wales, through a range of interventions tailored to the needs and circumstances of the individual to achieve the following outcomes: 

Confidence building and vocational skills, such as: 

  • Knowledge, skills and work behaviours 
  • Skills relating to developing applications for work 
  • Problem solving, communicating and relationship management 
  • Emotional resilience and confidence 
  • Manage money more carefully 

Practical help, such as: 

  • transport challenges 
  • Identifying realistic and appropriate options for work 
  • Information on vacancies in association with Job Centre Plus et al 
  • Referrals to training programmes to learn additional skills, including accredited training and qualifications relevant to the participant’s journey towards work 
  • Referral to further and higher education programs 
  • Awareness of technology that can support sensory loss in the workplace 
  • Providing access to work experience, work placements, volunteering opportunities and job tasters through a wide range of employers 

Specific outcomes for each participant exiting the programme could be: 

  • Supporting them into employment 
  • Completing work experience placement or volunteering opportunity 
  • Gaining a qualification or work relevant certification 
  • Or engaging in job search. 

The JobSense project also employs specialist Employer Engagement Coordinators to liaise with businesses across Wales to identify and facilitate suitable vacancies. We hope they will leave a legacy of employers better informed on the needs and support mechanisms (including Access to Work) available to people with a sensory loss.
