Workshops for parents

We run workshops throughout the year as detailed below. If you would like AS Mentoring to run a workshop or training session for your business or community, please contact us at workshops@asmentoring.co.uk

'Supporting your young person to find work' (London)

About: This course is designed for parents/carers of young adults with an ASC, to help them understand what they can - and can't - do to help their young person to prepare for the world of work, and how best to support them to find employment as they leave education. The workshop aims to give parents practical advice and ideas, and to signpost them to potential areas of further support and funding. Topic covered include:

  • Routes into work and higher education
  • Looking for work; the role that parents/carers can (and can't) play
  • Declaring an ASC diagnosis to an employer (when and how)
  • Reasonable Adjustments in the workplace
  • Available support

The workshop is for 10-15 people, snacks and cold drinks will be provided

'Going to University' (London)

The workshop will cover what support your young person can expect to receive at University and what to do to ensure they get the right support in place. We'll also be looking at the expectations of the University, and how to help prepare your young person for the change. The workshop will be delivered by two of our consultants who have supported students in Higher Educational settings across London and the South East for a number of years.
