Deaf people work in a wide range of roles from doctors to musicians to electricians. With the right support deaf people can work everywhere but are twice as likely to be unemployed as their hearing peers. Deaf young people are poorly informed about their rights and the support available to them in the workplace. However, through your support we can together make a difference in closing the employment gap.
Our conference will highlight best practice and guidance and give you practical ideas for supporting deaf young people in their journey into employment.
This event will be focussed around 3 main themes:
- how you can support deaf young people to access opportunities and move into work, including volunteering, work experience, and employability programmes
- the broad range of jobs and careers available to deaf young people
- tools and resources available for providing tailored careers support to deaf young people.
Young people will play a central role in the conference; you will also have the opportunity to hear about personal experiences first hand from deaf young people in employment.
