We are delighted to share with you our newest publication - Careermag for Inclusion 5 - the fifth 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 look at the recruitment of ex-offenders and hear from an important organisation which has worked with them since 1966. Nacro (the social justice charity) focuses its efforts on supporting individuals, building stronger communities and reducing crime. They support vulnerable individuals into society, offering housing, education, substance misuse recovery and advice. Andrea Coady, Head of Service User Involvement, gives valuable insight into how employing ex-offenders can really benefit your business and society as a whole.
We also feature case studies, including one from the Downs Syndrome Association, who are working with Hilton hotels to give people with Downs Syndrome valuable work experience and opportunities, and a feature from East Sussex about iCan - a bespoke careers event for young people with additional needs.
We hope you enjoy it!
