Additional Support Needs Schools project

Our ASN Schools Project has been created to work in partnership with the Additional Support Needs Schools across North Lanarkshire.

We have job coaches assigned to assist pupils from 4th– 6th year who are approaching the end of their education and looking to move into employment once they leave school. Our job coaches start preparing the pupils for leaving around 6-9 months before and organise various job tasters and work placements to give them a taste of the world of work.
