JCP in Schools is working strategically with Rotherham special schools to add value to the Enterprise Adviser Network.

Rose Aizlewood, the JCP in Schools Work Adviser, has been attending review and action planning meetings with special schools and Enterprise Advisers because of the shared interest to increase work experiences and opportunities for special school students.

Being involved from the beginning means that Rose has already started delivering activity in some special schools, and is proving a valuable partner to Rotherham’s developing SEN Dream Team.

As a result of special schools wanting to increase students’ work related opportunities and experiences, Rose Aizlewood, the JCP in School Work Adviser has joined Enterprise Adviser meetings

Rose Aizlewood, the JCP in Schools Work Adviser, has been integrated into Rotherham’s work with special schools, including assisting at Person Centred Review meetings, assisting in team building and skill building activities and discussing job roles, application forms and interviews with students.

She has also started to build important links with other contacts and start creating activity tailored to schools’ needs, which utilises the skills and resources of local providers. For example, AD-PRO, a local learning disability provider which helps enhance the skills and work prospects of SEN young people and adults, is working with Rose and the special schools to inspire students about the world of work.

Rose said: “It has been invaluable for me to be involved with special schools from the start. They have a clear focus on wanting to improve employment prospects for their students, and I have been able to provide learning around jobs, recruitment, mock interviews and work inspiration. From the schools point of view, they don’t have to keep having the same conversations; I’ve just been part of the process for them, which means we can act quickly and make the most of the time and resources we have. What has struck me, is how much the students have to offer, in terms of a brilliant attitude, loyalty, diligence, all qualities employers value. Special schools have excellent examples of how their students really add value to employers when they are on work placement, and we want to really shout from the rooftops about what these students can do.”
