School Leaver Employment


School Leaver Employment Support

Many adolescents with disabilities leave high school unable to get a job. This can be further complicated if their disability prevents them from working in a traditional workplace. The key to breaking this cycle is finding an employer who understands that having a person with a disability does not mean they will no longer employ people or operate within a business sector. We understand that many students leave high-school unable to get employment and often end up in low-paying jobs. This leaves many of them unemployable for the rest of their lives unless they pursue postgraduate studies or other opportunities after graduation. We also know that there are so many qualified individuals with disabilities who would make excellent employees but are not taken into consideration due to outdated stereotypes and negative perceptions they might have received from past employers, colleagues and family members.

School Leaver Employment FAQ

As people with disabilities become more visible in society, employers are being held accountable for hiring people who can be successful on their teams. This can lead to companies providing more accommodations and positions to those with disabilities, which can lead to an increase in wages. Sometimes, these accommodations can also lead to an increase in job satisfaction. For example, someone who has a hearing impairment may find they are better able to focus if they are given additional time to complete tasks, such as making phone calls or listening to recorded voice messages. These and other adjustments can result in more equitable hiring practices and better outcomes for people with disabilities and their employers. School leavers with disabilities may face additional barriers when seeking employment, including training and/or certification requirements, lack of employer awareness about hiring people with disabilities, and a lack of accessible job postings.
