Providing a clear pathway from education to employment for people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Bristol City Council

Bristol WORKS For Everyone

Bristol City Council tasked us with creating an interactive and user friendly website to help people with learning difficulties discover employment opportunities from ages 14 to retirement.

The ‘Menu of Opportunity’ website is phase 1 of the project working with Bristol City Council to help the service user, their parents, support workers and carer identify a clear pathway from education to paid employment.

Service users currently fall through the gaps between various support programmes as they reach an age or education threshold, resulting in slow career development, long term volunteer or limited progression roles.

We we're tasked with creating a website that provides service users, parents / carers and educators with a single online resource that shows all of the education and employment support programmes available to a service user today and in the future.

Support service can be filtered and organised by age range helping the user to easily find relevant services.

website features

The Bristol Works For Everyone website focuses on one primary objective, help users find and contact service providers as efficiently as possible. Website features have been kept to a minimal to reduce distraction and help all user navigate content

Users of the website are likely to feel nervous or anxious about interacting with council support services. We collaborated with a Bristol based illustrator to create a suite of bespoke illustrations based on the concept of education and support to create an approachable appearance for the council's services.

  • AJAX card previews - reducing multiple page loads and data consumption helping the user to quickly browse support services
  • Card category filtering
  • Bespoke illustrations
  • Responsive website design
