New Contract – Work Taster Placements

Inspira has recently secured a new contract in collaboration with our reachfor partners.youth employee

The contract involves young people in Key stages 3, 4 and 5 with SEND. The objective is to engage them in supported work taster placements to ensure that they are better prepared to make transitions.  Two key points about the contract are to:

  • ensure employers are better prepared to take young people with SEND on work experience
  • use volunteers to complement paid staff in the delivery model

This is a one year contract running between April 2015 and March 2016.

In order to fulfill the requirements of the contract we are required to engage 60 beneficiaries, 30 employers and deliver 300 interventions during this period.

Placements must be tailored to the young person’s needs and be applicable to long term career plans. There are no set criteria on the length of placement and it is for us to determine which Key Stage we will target.

More information will be provided for area teams in coming weeks.
