WALK PEER supports young people with Special Educational Needs to identify opportunities and bridge gaps to mainstream Further Education, Training, and Employment
This ability* funded project supports young people with special educational needs aged 15-24 within three special schools' settings to develop their employment aspirations, identify their career goals and experience work in the open labour market. It ultimately supports young people with disabilities to develop a career like their non-disabled peers.
WALK PEER Goals:
WALK PEER Careers & Employment Facilitators support students to develop their career aspirations, plan their individual pathway and transition to appropriate local opportunities.
*Ability is co-financed by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
