Training and apprenticeship schemes aim to provide a smooth transition from education into employment; they can be very valuable for young people with special needs and disabilities, to further develop their life and work skills.
If a young person wishes to look into this option then this should be discussed as part of the transition planning at their school.
Numerous organisations provide information and guidance on the training and apprenticeship schemes which may be suitable; links to these can be found below.
