Getting Ready for Work 2021

Welcome to our 4th annual Getting Ready for Work event.

Our Getting Ready for Work event has always provided young people (and their families) with the information needed to make confident decisions about the future and give all young people with special educational needs the opportunity to gain meaningful paid employment.  

And this year is no different. In place of our usual face-to-face event, you'll find lots of useful information within these web pages (available to view/download until Tuesday 31 August).

If you're an organisation wishing to contribute to these information pages, please email Stuart Smith at ssmith7@hillingdon.gov.uk.

A variety of opportunities, including study programmes, vocational courses, traineeships and supported apprenticeships.
