Businesses are being encouraged to employ people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
A 90-minute event designed to introduce SEND into the workplace is being organised for Wednesday 21 April from 4-5.30pm and Thursday 27 May from 4-5.30pm.
The event is being held in partnership with BCP council, Dorset LEP and The Careers and Enterprise Company.
Cllr Andrew Parry’s message to businesses is, “We respect and value your time and acknowledge this is a potentially busy time of year as COVID-related guidelines start to relax. These events have been designed to only take an hour and a half, but that quick session has potentially significant results for your business. Plus, we’re hosting this completely digitally, so you don’t need to leave your existing work environment.”
Steve Williams, Careers Hub lead, said, “Dorset businesses understand that young people with special needs should have local pathways towards careers and independent living, and they know that it is rewarding in many ways to offer opportunities and support. This event will go a long way to provide clarity and confidence.”
