National Apprenticeship Week 2017

We're supporting National Apprenticeship Week 2017

Are you looking for an Apprenticeship?

Do you have dyslexia?

Are you a manager of an apprentice with dyslexia?

We can support apprentices and managers to ensure you get the support you need to achieve in the workplace. Sometimes the smallest changes can make the biggest difference.

The Dyslexia Adult Network (DAN) highlights the following information regarding Dyslexia and Apprenticeships

"Data from 2010-11 showed that 18,940 learners participating on an apprenticeship programme self-declared dyslexia; this has been a feature of the winners of Apprentice of the Year.

Employers can expect people who come to them via this ‘on-the-job training’ route to have a higher than usual incidence of dyslexia – and should be prepared to support them. The National Apprenticeship Service is working on an action plan aimed at improving support provisions and exam accessibility using assistive technology.

Professor Roderick Nicholson highlights that high-profile corporations including the BBC, Virgin and Google are successful because they encourage dyslexic people in senior roles - see his TED talk. Research from the Cass Business school flags up high numbers of successful entrepreneurs with dyslexia: an area that has become ever more important in the BREXIT landscape."
