Progressing Accessible Supported Transitions to Employment

The Progressing Accessible Supported Transitions to Employment report by Drs. Ger Scanlon and Alison Doyle has been published.  [Paste final report 10/10/18

The research "investigated the concept of supported transition for school leavers with intellectual disabilities, as a means of accessing mainstream opportunities in further / higher education, training, and employment (FETE). The collaboration between researchers Dr Ger Scanlon and Dr Alison Doyle in the Institute of Education at Dublin City University and WALK PEER  arose in conjunction with the enactment of the Comprehensive Employment Strategy for people with disabilities (2015) and an innovative model of supported transition developed by  WALK PEER. The  model was developed to engage young people with Intellectual Disabilities whilst they are in school, to support them to develop their career aspirations, explore mainstream opportunities, and implement ambitious transition plans to enable them to exercise personal  choice about their own futures" (extracted from Dublin City University Website on 14.08.18).

This research piece was funded by the Irish Research Council.
