About our Aspire to Work Programme

Group of corporate volunteers and AFK trainees

If you are aged 14-18 and have a learning disability, my AFK can help you learn the skills you need to find a job.


As part of the Aspire to Work Programme at AFK, students will be given opportunities to:


  • gain an introduction to the world of work, meeting real employers and seeing how real workplaces are run
  • take part in mock interviews with real employers, either online or face to face
  • undertake tasks and challenges set by employers
  • undertake Work Experience (for those aged 16 to 19)
  • participate in Travel Training to learn how to travel independently
  • participate in AFK’s Leadership Programme

Next steps: getting a job

Once you have completed your work experience and learned new skills, we can help you get a job with one of our corporate partners, or somewhere else.
