The Autism Project
The Autism Project is a full-time 2-year employment programme for young people, aged 18-25, with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder who would like to work but need more confidence, support, skills and experience.
Our programme includes:
- Work experience placements within St Guy's or St Thomas' hospitals
- Work place mentoring
- Specialist job coaches
- Classroom learning where students can work towards City & Guild qualifications.
In addition, we support our young people to improve their independent living skills, become involved in their community and take steps to stay healthy.
Our goals is for young people to become work-ready while achieving their individual goals as defined in their Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.
To apply, young people must have, or be in the process of being assessed for, an EHC plan.
