Our Pledge

We believe this is such a missed opportunity and we want to change the employment prospects for all our young people.

 

How will we do this? We pledge to:

 

  • Shape the careers programmes in our schools to start to work with neurodiverse young people at an earlier age, offering practical advice, opportunities and routes to employment to help focus minds and choices
     

  • Structure our curriculum to equip our young people not only with the academic qualifications that they need to succeed, but also the practical, social and ‘soft skills’ needed to thrive in the workplace
     

  • Educate employers (and the wider society) about the untapped potential of neurodiverse minds and the simple adjustments that can make employment more straightforward and successful for all
     

  • Create a network of neurodiverse employers who will learn and work alongside us to prepare our young people for direct employment in their organisation/s:

    • They will help us to shape the curriculum/skills that our young people need to be successful 

    •  They will offer our young people meaningful work experience opportunities and internships - pre-employment - to enable them to gain real-life experience, whilst finalising their studies with us
       

  • Profile the brilliant young people that we work with and share their stories of success in order to inspire others
     

  • Contribute to the increased number of neurodiverse people who are in meaningful, successful and long-term employment,
     

  • Provide amazing guaranteed pathways for our young people to experience success beyond our doors!
