Our Promise

The underemployment of neurodiverse individuals is a missed opportunity.

 

CavendishWORKS aims to amplify the employment prospects for all our young people while highlighting the power of neurodiverse thinking to change the world. We pledge to do this by:

Educating employers and wider society about the untapped potential of neurodiverse minds. This will help them see how simple adjustments that lead to more inclusive workplaces in which a greater number of people can thrive.

SHAPING

Shaping the careers programmes in our schools so we start preparing our students earlier for the world of work. Students will benefit from increased practical advice, opportunities and routes to employment that will help focus minds and choices.
