First placement for new SEND work experience project
7th May 2015
Adviza has placed its first young person on work experience through the new SEND work experience project. Funded by Department for Education, the project aims to give young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) the chance to experience a job first hand.
Bethany, a student from Sandhurst School, was given a work placement through Adviza’s project at Marks and Spencer based in Camberley. As a student with extra needs there were a number of obstacles that Bethany needed to overcome, but with the help and time of an Adviza Job Coach she was confident in accepting a work placement in a big retail store. This, alongside Marks and Spencer’s good support system for young people with SEND, meant that the placement was a perfect match for Bethany.
A staff member at Marks and Spencer said: “Bethany was very helpful, polite, smiley and a pleasure to have.”
