This is a comprehensive programme of activities designed to support young people as they make the transition from education to employment. Following the hugely successful TALKABOUT structure, the programme is broken down into topics and activities, each constructed to teach the skills necessary for further education or employment. Topics explore the various opportunities available to school leavers, offer guidance on the application and interview processes and consider the skills necessary to make employment a success. Exploring transition as a process of discovery, this programme takes the fear and uncertainty out of this time of change.
The resource includes:
- Assessment and evaluation forms to help assess the needs of the individual and personalise the programme
- 40 engaging activities
- Fully photocopiable and downloadable colour resources to facilitate group sessions
This book is an invaluable resource for professionals working with teenagers and young adults with social, emotional & mental health difficulties, autism spectrum disorders and intellectual disabilities. The programme would also benefit teenagers and young people daunted by change or struggling to find or remain in employment.
