FiP attended the SEND Employment Forum on 9 June 2023, to participate in understanding the challenges and develop better and more ambitious opportunities for our young people with SEND as they enter the field of employment. Leaving education settings and preparing for the transition into adulthood and the world of employment is a huge step for our Worcestershire young people and better more inclusive opportunities are necessary. Anything from part time to full time employment, apprenticeships, internships, and even further innovative opportunities for employees to fully engage in inclusive best practice was discussed.
The next forum will be held on 8th September and FiP will be attending. We will then be able to provide an update and schedule of activities to gain the Parent Carer and Young Persons voice.
