Disability Confidence in Careers & Employability (Free Webinar)
What does it mean to be ‘disability confident’ in a careers and employability setting, and why does it matter so much? We invite you to join us to learn more about what it means to offer a ‘disability confident’ careers service to your students.
To successfully prepare your students with disability for future employment, it is vital that careers and employability teams confidently understand and can address the unique concerns and challenges of students with disability transitioning into work so they can access opportunities and compete on a level playing field.
This interactive webinar, run by Helen Cooke, CEO of MyPlus will:
- Examine the employment landscape for students with disability
- Outline the challenges faced by students as they navigate the recruitment process
- Develop your knowledge of how to advise students to overcome the challenges they face
- Guide you as you plan for success
This free session will run online from 4:00pm – 5:00pm AEST, Thursday 29th July.
