Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Ambitious about Autism provide services, raise awareness and understanding, and campaign for change. Through TreeHouse School, The Rise School and Ambitious College, Ambitious About Autism offer specialist education and support. Their ambition is to make the ordinary possible for more children and young people with autism.
Ambitious About Autism is the national charity for children and young people with autism. Their vision is a world where the ordinary is the everyday experience of children and young people with autism, who are at the centre of all that they do. Ambitious About Autism will be working with the Skills Builder Partnership to bring their experience and expertise to support young people with Autism to develop essential skills, as well as raising employers' awareness and providing meaningful opportunities for employment.
