Start your career

Where to start

Young people with disabilities have the same rights as others when you are looking for employment.

By law, employers must treat everyone equally and make reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities in their workplace.

What route to take 

Taking some time to find out all you can about the route you want to take is an excellent way to start.

There are opportunities to help you find work through various routes:

  • traineeships
  • apprenticeships
  • supported internships
  • kickstart scheme 
  • volunteering
  • self employment

You will need a curriculum vitae (CV) to help you get the role you want. Your school will help you with this. Your CV should have:

  • your contact details,
  • your skills and abilities
  • your education
  • work experience
  • hobbies and interests
  • references
