New Employability Support Collaboration
A new collaboration forged by All Age Autism Support Service (AAA Support Service) will see Birmingham Community Leisure Trust working with four All Age Autism Grants Holders offering employment training and support services across Birmingham and Solihull.
United Support Group has started delivering Drop-In Employment Advice sessions at Leisure Centres around north Birmingham, while Caudwell Children is currently recruiting for their online employability training for young people, recognising the opportunities to focus on careers in the sports and leisure industry.
The collaboration with Community Leisure Trust, who manage nine leisure centres across Birmingham, will create new work experience placements feeding into other projects such as Experts by Experience Solihull’s volunteering and employment support project running in Solihull. The collaboration will also involve Autism West Midlands delivering employer autism awareness training to Serco Leisure Centre managers in October to ensure a wider understanding of workplace adjustments and support to provide sustainable employment to autistic candidates.
