3 Unique Courses
Career planning for school children aged 13 to 16. We give young blind students an understanding of the skills, tools and competencies you need for any job. We focus on interview techniques and practice. Students are taken through the recruitment process so that they understand how to cope with a variety of assessments and tests that employers put potential employees through and they are shown how important it is to prepare for work at an early stage.
Role models Course
A short workshop introducing parents, carers, teachers and young blind students to role models. These role models are blind and visually impaired computer programmers, lawyers and IT consultants. People who are doing the types of jobs their son or daughter may wish to pursue. We believe in widening opportunities for people - this workshop provides new ways of thinking about visual impairment and gives parents and teachers ideas on how to help young blind people work towards their goals in a positive way.
Access Technology Course
Introducing technology to make children aged 13 to 16 more informed customers of access technology. Participants are taken through simple steps to give them the knowledge to make technology purchasing decisions for themselves. Far too often children leave education and are not fully aware of their technology needs and the options available to them for the use in the home, education and the workplace. The unique structure of this course gives participants the chance to try and test technologies from a variety of suppliers who will be on hand to answer questions and provide support and advice.
