Physical Work Experience for Neurodiverse Students

This project team have been working with a local school supporting neurodiverse students. Six students with varying levels of autism (low functioning and high functioning) have been attending an in-person work experience placement on site with their support tutors.

During these sessions the students have participated in interactive activities with different members of the team. Sessions hosted to date include Design and Construction, with upcoming sessions on Environment, Vertical Transport, and Health and Wellbeing.

Prior to hosting these work experience placements, members of the team who are acting as mentors and session leaders attended a training session on neurodiversity to ensure they were aware of how to appropriately support, educate and empower the students.

The training provided a fantastic insight of viewing the world through autism.
