Lunch & Learn: Facilitating & Implementing Working Interviews with Employers

10/07/23 12:00 to 13:00


For those of us that work in Supported Employment, we know all too well that our learners can be at a massive disadvantage when it comes to the current world of recruitment. To put things simply, there is a difference between being able to do a job and being able to talk about doing a job. However positively promoting working interviews with employers sometimes isn’t enough, like anything, we need to support them to implement and reassure them that some people need to be treated differently in order to be treat equally.

This workshop will look at Working Interviews as a general concept and also go into detail about how to sell, implement and will give advice on how to support both the employer throughout the process.
