When you arrive

Once you get to our office, you will need to sign in.


If you are a trainee or a visitor, you will also be given a badge to wear around your neck. This helps us see who you are while you are visiting us.


  • Sign in at reception and put your badge on around your neck.
  • If this is your first time at AFK, tell the receptionist you are here as part of the Life and Work Programme. They will let a staff member know you are here
  • Come into the office and say hello to your Job Coach or wait for them if that is what you have discussed.

Some of AFK's Employability and Skills sessions are often held offsite in the community. We'll let you know if this will apply to you.
