Supported by funding from the Department for Education, we are working with employers and education providers across England with the aim of securing work placements for 500 young people with a learning disability by March 2019.
If you are a college, school or other education provider supporting students with SEND on study programmes, we can provide you with access to agreed work placements with employers, and with support to manage them effectively through The Right Place project.
We use our extensive employer engagement contacts to broker work placements to build up a bank of available placements your students can choose from; or work directly with specific employers in response to individual student need.
We pass placements on to you, and you will match available SEND students into placements and support them in the workplace. We will also give you guidance and information on developing your own links with employers for placements, as well as ongoing support to develop your practice
We believe that getting real workplace experience whilst still in education, can make a big difference to the ambitions, confidence & skills of young people with a learning disability and their future job prospects
