As part of National Autistic Society's Autism Employment Gap campaign, they found that 77% of autistic people want to be in work, but fewer than one in five has a full-time job.
Employment isn’t right for all autistic people, but being in meaningful work can provide a real sense of self-worth, engagement and purpose.
There is an undiscovered workforce of motivated, talented autistic people who are having serious difficulty finding work. The new employment module has been designed to support autistic adults and young people into employment.
It looks at the steps involved in applying for work, interviewing tips and starting work. The module aims to allow users to create a personalised profile, which they can then use when attending interviews or starting work.
The online resource will help you to:
Identify your personal skill set and positive attributes
Support your understanding of autism, including positive disclosure
Develop CV writing and job application skills
Develop interview techniques and strategies
Develop skills to prepare for the workplace
