Become a partner and adopt a school for the Disability Connect Workplace Readiness Day for the Class of 2021

This workplace readiness programme helps prepare 1 000 learners living with disabilities for what they can expect after school.

The 2nd annual Disability Connect Workplace Readiness Day will take place in April 2021. As the class of 2021 prepare to leave their schools and journey out into the world, this is your opportunity to assist them on their way!

This virtual workplace readiness programme helps prepare 1 000 learners living with disabilities for what they can expect after school.

Operated from our studios in Fourways Gauteng, the event is live streamed to LSEN schools across Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Free State. Each school will be equipped with a virtual conference set-up consisting of a large screen and connectivity toolkit. With this new and exciting format, sponsors are able to access special needs schools around Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Free State and speak directly to matric students.

Corporates have 20 minutes each to address the audience on graduate programmes, learnerships, workplace readiness,  internships, ESD programmes or any other topic of interest the company wishes to address.

This is the primary opportunity to make an impact in the disability community, engage with this space and make a meaningful impact for this community.

At this unique day, pupils receive expert talks on:

  • University and FET programmes for special need graduates
  • Putting together a CV
  • Tips and techniques for acing job interviews
