Community of Practice - Employers

Supporting engagement between SEND schools and Employers

We know that interactions with employers can help make a life changing difference to the young people in our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Schools. 

 

We have young people with a variety of career aspirations, as you can see from our video with Daventry Hill School students. 


This page gives a variety of resources, and links to support which can help us to work together and create opportunities for individuals. 


Nothing on this page is a nice thing to do, it is a sound business decision. We look forward to working with you, and welcome your ideas as to how to develop these resources. 

Get Involved

Supported Internships 

 

Supported Internships are a great way for individuals to access employment. But what are they? What benefits do they bring and how do I get involved?

 

Use the resources below to Help you 

 

Introduction to Supported Internships – An interview with Ali Campbell about Supported Internships and the way in which they can benefit individuals and businesses. 

 

Guide – A written guide to share with individuals or businesses about supported internships and the benefits they bring to all involved. 

 

 

 

Offering Work Experience (Physical and Virtual)

 

The Value of Work Experience Placements – Hear from the Students at Slated Row about what they gained from various placements

 

https://www.speakersforschools.org/ - Offer a Virtual Work Experience Placement. From a short experience talk about your career, through to extended placements for individuals. 


Could you prepare a workplace guide for us such as this one? It would really help the students to get an idea of what it would be like to work for your company
