Making Transitions Work
The Making Transitions Work project will engage with employers to instil confidence and proactiveness when it comes to recruiting disabled young people.
We will provide guidance, support and education on how to recruit disabled young people and how to retain them in their positions and we will dispel the myths and uncertainties around this.
The research commissioned by the Transitions workstream was to ascertain whether employers were confident in offering work experience opportunities to disabled young people, if their efforts were proactive and if not, why? It additionally sought to understand what would support these employers in hiring disabled young people and identify those who are already willing to support disabled young people into the workplace from school, college or community learning.
