Working with Employers and Trainers to support Young People with Special Educational Needs/Disability into Employment (SENEL)
The international project Special Education Needs Employment Links (SENEL) prioritises for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), support for their transition into the labour market from vocational education and training (VET) and further education (FE) and making employment accessible for young people with SEND by providing essential information and guidelines for employers. In almost all countries in the EU, such groups are particularly at risk of dropping out at this critical stage in their education and development.
Bernadette McLean from the Helen Arkell Centre is part of the steering group for this exciting European project. At this time of uncertainty we are continuing to forge links with our European partners to make Europe and the globe a better place for people with dyslexia and other SEN to find work. This is not something that we can allow borders to influence! SENEL is working together with young people and businesses across Europe to change improve the employment chances for people with dyslexia.
The key objective of this two-year Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project is to contribute two dynamic and culturally sensitive tools for use across Europe to support this transition process for young people with SEND.
