Aston University

The Give Project works alongside students with learning disabilities to inspire them to develop their skills through four interactive and creative sessions. Our programme begins with the design and making of Christmas Crackers which the students then sell, through various methods and platforms including Christmas Fairs and Amazon, to spark their Entrepreneurial spirit! Not only this, but each student is allocated a role in our team aiding in their personal development for when it comes to the next stages after College, whether it may be taking more of a creative, leadership or business role, playing to their strengths. We also provide tailored employability workshops and work experience with local businesses to reduce the inequalities for students with disabilities when finding employment.

What Global Goals are we working towards?

4 – Quality Education

8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth

10 – Reduced Inequalities

How can you help us?

We are looking to connect with businesses who can help us understand what types of skills and qualities they look for when hiring employees. This will help us develop our training programme.
