Our mentors have extensive knowledge of supporting employers to achieve the best possible outcomes for someone with a disability in the workplace.

This combined with our track record on sustained employment and our tailored job matching service makes us an ideal partner to support both you and your students.

How We Help

We work with each student to produce a vocational profile that identifies aspirations, needs, abilities and skills. This is a very effective tool in getting to know and understand students and gather information that will lead to an appropriate support strategy and internship placement.

We provide the right help and support so that both the student and the employer have a positive experience.
Our aim is to enable students to find successful and relevant internship placement opportunities by using the following approaches, support and experience:

  • a vocational profile assessment
  • local employer knowledge
  • finding relevant experience close to a student's home
  • communicating with employers
  • job coaching and in work support.

This training helps students gain the skills, experience and confidence to travel independently. We use a structured method to develop skills and build confidence. Skills such as how to plan a journey, road safety, understanding of travel routes and timetables, problem solving and personal safety are developed.

We can support your students with:

  • vocational profiling
  • careers guidance
  • CV writing
  • job search skills and job matching
  • interview skills and practice
  • employer visits.
