Jobs + Education
People with intellectual disability can face discrimination and inequality in education and the workplace.
We want people with intellectual disability to have equal opportunities for good education and a meaningful career.
What we are doing
Through our ‘More than Just a Job’ project we offer training and support for people with intellectual disability to find and keep a job they enjoy. We also train employers on how to better support people with intellectual disability.
We produce resources to help people with intellectual disability think about their life and careers.
Our me360 cards help young people with disability have conversations about the important things in their lives.
Our Get More Skills in Schools workshops are fun, interactive and encourage students to think about what they want.
