Adult Care Services (ACS) is part of Hertfordshire County Council. We have a number of sessions per week available for service users from the ACS teams to undertake work based skills training. Experience shows that service users undertaking such opportunities at Watford Workshop benefit from spending time within a work environment, as well as the social contact while working and during their breaks.
Full account of each service user’s capabilities is taken when assigning tasks. We provide task-specific training within a work environment and can be complemented by more specific training such as numeracy, literacy, IT, food hygiene and cooking skills (see Training & Development section for all courses available). This type of training is provided in one-to-one sessions or small groups.
Watford Workshop is suitable for ACS service users including those with Direct Payments, Personal Budgets and Personal Care Packages who wish to attend up to nine half-day sessions per week and experience the world of work and who will enjoy working alongside others on a variety of tasks.
