Korean Association of the Vocational Rehabilitation Facilities for the Disabled visit Newham College
The visit to Newham College was to find out how the UK helps SEND Students to find employment after studies.
The Korea Association of the Vocational Rehabilitation Facilities for the Disabled came to Newham College to visit and learn more about our Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) department, and to find out how we work with the local borough to support students with their employability after completing studies.
They are working on a project that aims to build a system where people with learning disabilities are trained to get a job in a local community under the sponsorship of Asan Foundation established by the founder of Hyundai Motor Group.
They have been recommended to visit our provision and are interested in learning what is being done in the UK for students with learning disabilities to be able to move on with their life after they leave school. They are especially interested in how they are supported to find employment.
On their tour at Newham College, they visited the fantastic facilities of the FOCUS floor and how it supports our SEND Students' learning and daily occurrences. They were then shown a presentation of how Newham College and Newham London Workplace work together to support SEND students employability after studies.
