Next week, Griffith will host a series of workshops aimed at attracting students with disabilities to the workforce for families and students. It is hoped that the “School to Work” seminars will show that employment is possible for all, and will facilitate the transition to the workforce from high school. They are aimed primarily at families of students with disabilities to assist them in the planning stages. The workshops are led by Family Advocacy NSW, which emphasize the importance of significant, paid employment. It is hoped that Australians with disabilities employ only 53% compared to 83% of the general population. Only 39% of people with intellectual disabilities work. It is hoped that the elimination of imbalances at an early stage and the work of high school students will be able to achieve justice. Family Advocacy NSW highlighted the nature of jobs as typical high school jobs where students with disabilities can work with non-disabled people. While the project began in September 2020, the first of these workshops took place in May 2021. However, after COVID reached its peak, the band was forced to go online, but are happy to return in person. READ MORE Riverina master classes will begin at Wagga on May 9 and take place at Griffith on May 12. The workshop will be held at Griffith Quest for $ 35 for people with disabilities and their families and $ 50 for professionals. The price includes meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
