Employment for students with additional needs with Donna Morgans, Supported Employment Services Manager
Even though Donna is based in Berkshire, her experience and knowledge may help those with additional needs seeking employment in Dorset and elsewhere.
‘I have been working in Wokingham for the last 17 years as the Supported Employment Service Manager. I previously worked in the private sector at Director Level, and even after 17 years my motivation and drive hasn’t faulted in my pursuit of sourcing opportunities for as many people as possible. We work with SEN schools, residential, Post16 (0 – 25 services) Colleges
and local employers to secure pathways into the world of work’.
