Many of our school programmes support young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) up to the age of 25 and employer involvement is a key element.
We have extensive experience in this area of work and we are called upon as local experts to offer strategic guidance to a number of groups including the county wide Careers and Enterprise Company SEND Community of Practice Hub.
We’ve been involved in the development of the Careers and Enterprise Company resources guide to support Employers and Enterprise Advisers when working with young people with SEND. Designed to increase levels of confidence in providing experiences and encounters of work, these resources will not only benefit young people with SEND, but also your business and workforce.
We have supported with Resource 3 which specifically looks at how to engage with a School, Special School or College and the steps you might take. It includes some tips to ensure the engagement is effective.
Please visit our school section to find out more about our different SEND programmes. There are many ways that you can support us – if you’re interested in getting involved please get in touch.
