Bringing disability confidence to campus: Getting started
To successfully support disabled students as they transition from education to employment, careers advisers and academic support staff must be able to confidently understand and be able to address the challenges that face them. But what does ‘disability confident’ actually mean and what additional expertise is required to support this group into employment?
During this webinar, we will explore the 5 pillars of disability confidence and challenge delegates to think about what this means for their institution and how they can get started on their journey. It will also provide insights into the disability and employment landscape and the challenges faced by both students and careers and placement advisers.
The webinar will:
- Examine the employment landscape for disabled students.
- Outline the current challenges faced by both students with disabilities and those tasked with supporting them into employment
- Explore the 5 key pillars of disability confidence
- Guide you as you plan for success
By the end of the webinar, delegates will have the knowledge and confidence to either get started on their journey to being disability confident or be able to progress the journey you are already on.
The webinar will be delivered by Helen Cooke, CEO and Founder of MyPlus and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
We hope that you will be able to join us on July 14th. If you would like additional information and / or to book your place, please email Emma Knox, University Partnerships’ Manager at MyPlus.
