The first stage is an initial Momentum assessment. If the programme is suitable for the applicant’s needs, they will start on the initial phase of the programme, Module1 – Personal development.
Throughout this 12-week first phase, each person will develop a clear vocational goal and readiness to progress onto work placement. The personal development phase will be delivered in various individual and group rehabilitation sessions provided within Momentum’s centre.
The second phase of the programme, Module 2 – work preparation, focuses on providing each person with work placements in their area of vocational interest within real-world work or educational environments.
