We are delighted to share with you our newest publication - Careermag for Inclusion 4 - the fourth Careermag for Inclusion publication produced by Careermap in partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company. As you work with young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities, we hope you will find it interesting. Additionally, it is a resource which you can share with employers you already work with but who may not work with your young people with SEND yet but who may just need advice and inspiration to start.
This issue is packed full of inspiring articles and case studies from organisations working tirelessly to promote and facilitate inclusion in the workplace and equip, inspire and support people in their journey into work.
We take a look at the work of CareTrade, which gives young people with autism opportunities to develop their skills through hospitality and arts projects. Worcestershire makes a welcome addition to the magazine, with a feature about their Passport to Retail and Passport to Hospitality schemes.
This issue delves into the world of construction with Wilmott Dixon Construction. We also hear from leading national organisations Disability Rights UK, DFN Project SEARCH, Ambitious About Autism, ERSA and the British Dyslexia Association, whilst LNSEN (the London Neurodiversity SEND Network) highlights the benefits your business can expect if you become autism friendly.
Finally, in an important feature, we hear from a member of the CEC Youth Advisory Group. Emma Berwick, who identifies as having dyspraxia, gives you her top tips for employers on better supporting people into jobs.
In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy this edition of Careermag for Inclusion. If you’d like to subscribe to future editions of Careermag for Inclusion you can do so here.
