Ambitious about Autism have launched a new toolkit to support autistic young people moving into the workplace. The organisation explains that:
When they leave school, too few autistic young people carry on into further education, employment or training. The Transition to Employment toolkit aims to tackle that problem.
It has been developed to support those working with autistic young people to understand their needs and help them onto the job ladder, or into further training or education.
It includes resources for employers, post-16 careers and employability professionals and young autistic people themselves. The toolkit can be used as a whole, or as separate parts relevant to you. You can use all the resources in a section, or just the ones relevant to you or the young person. The editable templates can be adapted to each young person’s level of understanding and support needs.
The toolkit can be downloaded free of charge here.
