Preparation for Work

Based in Ayrshire Scotland, Input is a charity providing work preparation for people with additional educational needs.

Our trainees recycle donated used computers for use by the local community. Through these tasks a work principle is developed and instilled.

All Input trainees undergo an intensive twelve week induction programme.

Each programme is tailored to the individual set of trainees on each programme. We constantly test and improve our programmes with daily and monthly reviews and put our trainees at the heart of this.

Trainees may then continue to work with Input further developing and learning skills for between six months and a few years. Emphasis is given to working and delivering to the community – trainees help in delivering other courses and refurbishing computers as well as shaping, improving and developing our services.

Each trainee’s progress is tracked and evaluated with our innovative new system. Trainees are actively involved in the process and clear individual goals are agreed.

Input offers advice and computer repairs to the local community and other charities. We also provide consultancy within our specialised areas including adaptive technologies.

The resources of Input, its trainees and its volunteers are available for use by the community and to actively promote people with learning difficulties, the use of information technology, recycling and education.
