CareTrade – Employment project for 18-25 people with Autism in South London.

CareTrade are now accepting applications for their 2016-17 employment programmes for young adults with autism.

CareTrade believes passionately that all young people should be given the opportunity to reach their potential and lead fulfilling lives. Just 15% of adults with autism are in employment – its our mission to change this. One of the ways we are tackling this issue is by offering support to help adults with autism gain the skills, confidence and experience they need to succeed in employment. We are now recruiting for two projects:

The Autism Project is a full time course; students attend 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday, for 36 weeks. The aim of the course is to help young adults with autism (18-25) prepare for employment by offering work experience placements in a supportive environment at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals.

Employment Opportunities is a part time, 24 week job-finding programme that aims to support adults with autism (18+) who are already “work ready” into the jobs they want to do. Participants are expected to attend 1-2 days per week. CareTrade continues to provide ongoing support once a job has been secured.

Both projects will start in September 2016. Places are on a “first-come, first-served” basis so if you’re interested, make sure you apply now!
