Education, training and employment

It’s not just a question of conquering a summit previously unknown, but of tracing, step by step, a new pathway to it.

Pathway to Employment

West House can help you to access training, work experience and employment in a number of ways. 

Volunteering and job placements – we can help you find volunteering and job placements to suit your skills and interests.  

We are a delivery partner in the Choices project, helping people to become ‘work-ready’.

We run five social enterprises which provide training opportunities for people with learning disabilities – these are Cafe West in Workington, Whitehaven and Keswick, Grow West garden centre in Allerby, and The Pottery in Workington.
