Steps into Work Programme
This summer Autism Forward funded a new “Steps into Work” programme aimed at improving employment outcomes for autistic graduates. This programme, developed by AS Mentoring, targeted autistic adults who had recently graduated from Higher Education. The aim of the programme was to equip recent graduates with job searching skills, helping them identify their strengths and begin to explore their own path into the world of work. In addition to group sessions, each participant had a 1:1 mentor to help them further explore their goals and strengths, as well as any workplace adjustments they might need.
