With the uncertainty of the current climate, finding help on what to do next and where to start can be both confusing and disconcerting. King’s Careers & Employability is here to support you, wherever you are on your career journey. Today we want to highlight important webinars going on for support of our neurodiverse and disabled students!
EmployAbility is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting students and graduates with all disabilities, including dyslexia or long term health conditions, into employment. They are holding weekly Zoom webinars in order to support students who require help to get started. Specifically, these sessions are aimed at disabled students, with regular sessions until at least mid-May.
The description below was provided by EmployAbility:
‘EmployAbility is continuing to support neurodiversity and disabled students in these uncertain times. We are conscious that now, more than ever, students must properly understand their rights, feel confident to know and seek the adjustments they need in order to access a level playing field. Please join our webinar “Your Rights: Privacy and Adjustments”, which will provide an overview of the key points you need to know, empowering you to succeed. The webinar is free and will take place on Wednesday 29th April at 2pm. This series launches our Next Generation Inclusive Thinking manifesto, which aims to change the conversation around disability inclusion, and realise a cultural shift.’
The current dates for the webinars are below and can be registered to via King’s Career Connect.
29th April, 2pm: Your Rights: Privacy and Adjustments
