Level the playing field: accessing support and adjustments during the recruitment process.
Recruitment processes are designed to be challenging and competitive, however for those with a disability they can be impossible if appropriate support and adjustments are not put in place. Not surprisingly, however, asking for this support is challenging; but if students don’t request it, they will continue to be rejected for roles that they are more than capable of doing.
During this webinar you will:
- Understand why students with disabilities are often rejected for roles which they are more than capable of doing, and what you can do to mitigate this and provide support
- Build knowledge and an understanding of the wide variety of support and adjustments that employers can and do provide for students
- Provide insights into how the adjustment process works
- Enable delegates to confidently advise their students on how and when to request support during the recruitment process
- Provide practical tools to support students during the application process
The webinar will be delivered by Helen Cooke, Director 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 April 30th. To book a place, please email: Emma Knox, University Partnerships’ Manager at MyPlus.
Helen’s session offered insightful knowledge borne from her wide experience of engaging with employers that will certainly add to the skills and advice of practitioners and student advisors in further and higher education. – Ian Carter – Director, National Association of Disability Practitioners
