WALK PEER Ability Project

Bridging the Gap to Mainstream Further Education, Training & Employment.

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.


  • To enable young people supported to develop independence 
  • To support young people to make career choices 
  • To help young people supported to prepare for, find and stay in paid employment 

 WALK PEER Careers & Employment Facilitators support students to develop their career aspirations, plan their individual pathway and transition to appropriate local opportunities.

We Provide: 

  • One to one support 
  • An individual Personal Progression Plan (PPP) to help you achieve your goals 
  • Preparation for work 
  • Opportunities to develop practical skills 
  • Real work experience 
  • Job matching 
  • On the job support and coaching 
  • Guidance towards further education and training 
  • Follow up support and mentoring  

*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.
