Event description

Description

Our first ever Care Experience and Employment Summit will deepen your understanding of Care Experienced people's journeys into employment whilst dispelling myths. At this event you'll hear directly from workers and employers, such as the NHS, Falkirk Council and Disclosure Scotland, about the barriers faced by care experienced people and the benefits your workforce can gain by employing people who have care experience.

This conference is for employers, educators and anyone with a passion for supporting Care Experienced people into employment. You will learn in a pioneering space with workshops, talks and networking. Our expert panel will explore the power and importance of lived experience in the workplace. You'll also have the opportunity to take part in two of the following workshops:

  1. Family Firm Approach: Falkirk Council will be discussing why and how they are implementing a family firm approach across their organisation and the reasons and benefits of doing this.
  2. Barriers Around Convictions: Disclosure Scotland will be challenging the misconceptions around Care Experienced people and convictions. They will be giving practical advice on how employers can break down barriers surrounding convictions.
  3. Trauma Informed Approach: An introduction to a trauma aware approach and practical takeaways for you and your organisation.
  4. Education into employment: The workshop will look at the journey out of education into employment and the barriers that exist for Care Experienced people. Participants will be challenged to think of ways in which these barriers could be taken down.
