What is CavendishWORKS?

CavendishWORKS is our most ambitious project yet.

It has a single, world-changing aim:


 

 

to secure long-term, meaningful employment for all our students when they leave us. 

Traditionally, many schools and employers consider a student’s academic attainment as the primary indicator of their future success. For this reason, young people with unique learning profiles often face barriers in adulthood, including difficulties in securing employment.

The percentage of neurodiverse adults in meaningful jobs is woefully low at a time when some employers are struggling to recruit. This seems, in part, due to a lack of confidence shown by employers. 

Research indicates that some organisations may be nervous of ‘getting things wrong’ for neurodiverse employees. This is coupled with a lack of knowledge about how to actively support those with unique learning profiles.

 

By providing awareness, and dispelling myths around neurodiversity, CavendishWORKS is challenging the status quo.

At Cavendish Education, we understand the value and potential of a neurodiverse skillset. Our aim is to help employers to recognise the benefits of neurodiverse thinkers, and support them to confidently recruit and retain staff who think differently.

 

We partner with employers to ensure our curriculums deliver the skills and competencies needed in the modern workplace. In tandem, we will continue to help our students develop their ‘soft skills' which are crucial for their wellbeing and success when they leave us.

"Here at The Holmewood School we allow any applicant attending for a job interview to see the interview questions in advance.

This simple adjustment helps to reduce candidates’ anxiety, and allows interviewees to prepare their answers using relevant examples to ensure they can demonstrate their best self.”
