Employers who provide appropriate support to apprentices with dyslexia will reap the benefit of their strengths and valuable talents.

The types of support that will be useful for someone with dyslexia will vary from person to person. It is therefore important for line managers to speak to apprentices about the ways in which dyslexia affects their experience of work and what support they find most useful and effective.

We can support apprentices who have dyslexia and managers of apprentices to ensure apprentices achieve in the workplace.

Services we can offer include:

Consultation for managers/employees

  • Advice for a manager on a particular employee’s needs, includes advice on reasonable adjustments that can be put into place to support an employee
  • Advice on funding for support and training that is suitable for those who don’t know what to do next

Individual skills development training for the employee

Suitable for those experiencing problems such as organisation/time management/planning, reading, creating documents etc.

All of the above can take place in the workplace, at the Centre or via Skype

Dyslexia Awareness workshops for managers and colleagues:

  • These sessions can be tailor-made to suit requirements
  • Can take place at the centre or in the workplace
