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.
PAGS (Profile Assessment and Goal Setting), an innovative web-based assessment and progress monitoring tool. This digital communication platform enables skill development in neuro-diverse learners aged 5-25 with social communication difficulties, related to social, emotional behavioural and cognitive functioning.
PAGS (Profile, Assessment and Goal Setting) is a comprehensive assessment that covers four areas:
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social Interaction and Awareness
A new system designed to help schools and organizations support neuro-diverse learners, PAGS assesses the strengths and areas of development for all those who need support to achieve their expected level. Integrating the Skills Builder Framework means that learners will also be able to develop the eight essential skills as part of this system.
