Week of SEND 2021

LCC SEND Employment Project (Employers forum)
Organisation Logo Presentation by - Scott
The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Team at Lincolnshire County Council has embarked on an Employment project.

The project is aimed at embedding an employment pathway into our special school's existing Post-16 curriculum offer, which significantly increases young people's chances of obtaining paid employment upon leaving education.

The project aims to create opportunities; not only for our young people to enter the world of work but also for local businesses to develop and grow themselves in breaking down barriers associated with disability. They are working with schools to develop realistic and aspirational pathways for our young people to follow as they prepare for adulthood.

In addition, a SEND Employers Forum has also been created to develop a support network for employers, educators and other key stakeholders to benefit young people with additional needs across the county. The Forum is an opportunity to discuss and overcome challenges, explore new and innovative ways of working, drawing upon the skills and expertise around the table to promote and increase Supported Internships across Lincolnshire.
