Employer Information

You are vitally important to the success of the programme. We want to work in partnership with a range of employers who share our vision.

The main aim is to secure employment. The expectation on signing up as a partner is that your business has a real and genuine job that you’re hoping to recruit to at the end of the programme.

Benefits to Employers:

  • Access to specialist job matching
  • Acts as an extended interview which gives you an increased chance of getting the right person
  • Saves in recruitment costs
  • Increased staff retention
  • Interns may have skills currently lacking in existing staff (eg high-functioning autism can result in young people having significantly above average accuracy)
  • Develop the skills and ethos that your business may require
  • Free SEND training

Sometimes there is a nervousness around special educational needs. However, confidence is quickly gained through awareness and simple strategies put in place. Often, it’s about getting to know the young person and how best to work with them. Our training includes:

  • Autism Awareness
  • Autism friendly environment
  • Using visual strategies
  • Supporting transitions
  • Communication strategies
