The Gateway Award is an accessible Awards programme, specifically designed for people with a learning disability. The programme enables people to set and reach goals in various areas of their lives including independence, health and leisure as well as volunteering.
The Gateway Award is similar in structure to the Duke of Edinburgh Award with bronze, silver and gold levels. Participants achieve their awards by participating in a wide range of activities throughout the year. We deliver the award programme to groups of people from our centre but most activities take place in the community.
The programme currently runs on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, of which we are seeking one or two staff for all three days. As of July 2017, the days will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday so flexibility across working days would be preferable.
TO APPLY, please submit a CV and cover letter to Lizzie Carline either by email to [email protected] or by post to Wirral Mencap, 42-44 Market Street, Birkenhead, CH41 5BT. The cover letter should outline your suitability for the post against the job description and person specification.
