Optalis’ Supported Employment service has successfully launched the fifth year of its Ace@Optalis course, welcoming young students from the learning disability department at Reading College who are looking to secure employment. 

The ultimate goal of the Ace@Optalis course is to support students to achieve paid employment and work towards gaining independence in their role.

Thirteen students looking to secure careers in a variety of industries – including catering, retail and horticulture - have joined the course this year, which is held at social care provider Optalis’ Head Office.
