Many of our school programmes support young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) up to the age of 25. Employer involvement is a key element.
As a result of our extensive experience in this area of work, we are called upon as local experts. We offer strategic guidance to a number of groups including the county-wide Careers and Enterprise Company SEND Community of Practice Hub.
The Careers and Enterprise Company resources guide supports Employers and Enterprise Advisers when working with young people. Designed to increase levels of confidence in providing experiences and encounters of work, these resources benefit the young people, but also your business and workforce.
We 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 programmes. There are many ways that you can support us – if you’re interested in getting involved please get in touch.
