Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business
Luke Perkins (19) of Mansfield, is a student at Vision West Nottinghamshire College, and he is on a programme run in partnership with Mencap, the UK charity for people with a learning disability. The new programme helps people gain a supported work placement, and Luke was able to gain experience at the multi-award-winning hotel, which overlooks Carr Bank Park. Hayley Clements, a local Mencap co-ordinator, said: “This is the best outcome we could have hoped for.
The idea is that work placements lead to paid employment in the long-term, but Luke’s ability has shone through and he has already gained work. “We would like to offer a huge thank you to the team at Mansfield Manor Hotel for all that they have done for Luke, supporting him and giving him much-needed experience.” Keera Scott, from Mansfield Manor, said: “We try to offer opportunities to the area’s young people and so we were more than happy to offer Luke a place here at Mansfield Manor Hotel for a work placement. “He has proved to be a popular member of the team, and carries out his duties with care and attention. It made perfect sense to offer him a role here that fits in with his studies.”
There are currently 11 students on the Mencap scheme with the college, with places for more planned for the next academic year.
