Learning & development

Kisharon Langdon empowers people with learning disabilities and autistic people to lead fulfilling lives and achieve their personal and professional goals. 

Pathways to success

For people who wish to develop new skills and secure employment, we offer pathways to a wide range of training courses, vocational qualifications, and work experience placements. Each pathway enables them to build skillsets, boost their self-confidence, and increase their engagement in the community. As well as developing key skills for the world of work, we run personal development courses in food safety, personal hygiene and routine, internet safety, data protection, and Jewish life and learning.

Enterprise team

In partnership with our social enterprises, we offer people we support the opportunity to participate in voluntary and paid enterprise projects. These are often linked to the busy Jewish calendar and involve creating festive gifts and food parcels which are distributed to community organisations or sold online and instore at Equal, Kisharon Langdon’s Gift & Homeware Store.

People we support also exclusively run Bag My Treats, creating and selling colourful, organza sweet pouches to sweeten simchas and other special occasions. They undertake all aspects of managing the successful business, from contacting customers to confirming and delivering orders and creating fulfilment schedules.

Through these initiatives, our hard-working enterprise team acquire a range of practical skills and learn the value of working together, often developing lasting friendships as a result.

Outreach programme

As part of Learning & Development, we ensure people we support can contribute to their local community and make a meaningful difference. Through our outreach programme, they can engage in a range of charitable projects from packaging and delivering food parcels for Food Banks to preparing gift packs for children with serious illnesses to organising warm clothing collections for local shelters. As well as gaining numerous skills, these projects give participants a sense of worth and fulfilment and highlight the value of helping others.
