Event description
PfA invite you to attend their conference day | Sharing the Learning: Employment Opportunities for Young People with SEND.

About this Event

This is a free conference for SEND leads and education providers to share good practice in furthering young people's opportunities and successful take up of employment.

Employment is a central pathway for Preparing for Adulthood in the SEND reforms. There is a strong social and economic case to improving opportunities for young people with SEND to leave education with jobs and sustainable careers. As well as significant benefits for young people themselves, there are clear benefits for employers and for society as a whole.

These conferences will provide an opportunity to share: learning about what best supports young people with SEND to move into employment; the evidence-base for employment pathways; examples of good practice and an update on the national vision; and an overview of support from the Department for Work and Pensions for young people with SEND.

Conference sessions to include:

  • What evidence-based support looks like
  • Example of a personal journey into employment
  • Example of a journey around improving employment outcomes
  • Department for Education or Department for Work and Pensions spokesperson

Workshop sessions to include:

  • Commissioning effective employment support
  • The role of schools and college
  • Effective employer engagement
  • Understanding Access to Work

[Please note, sessions may change and speakers are to be confirmed. A full timetable of the day will be published, when available.]

Lunch will be provided, so do register and let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
