Lewisham College hosted a Disability Confident Jobs Fair in collaboration with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to help young people and adults with a disability to discover employment opportunities and receive advice on finding the right pathway to help them achieve their ambitions.

The event had an impressive turnout with more than 300 attendees, as well as many SEN college learners who met with employers and local support groups to find out more about live job vacancies and the support available to them in Lewisham. Some of the employers that attended included Active Inclusion (Clarion Housing), Aim4Work (Shaw Trust), BM Homecare, Care Outlook, Care Trade, Ground Work, Ignition Brewery, Lewisham College, Lewisham Council Employment Engagement Team, Lewisham Local, London & Quadrant, Love London Working, LSDN, Mencap Traineeships, MMikely Consultancy, National Careers Service (NCS), Prince’s Trust, SCOPE, SLaM/IPS, Work and Health Programme (Ingeus) and Youth Build.

Attendees were also able to hear from guest speakers from The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and learn more about disability awareness, access to employment and training opportunities and get careers and CV writing advice.

Gerard Garvey, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “We’re delighted to have hosted the Disability Confident Jobs Fair at our Lewisham Way campus. This event was a great opportunity to connect attendees and learners with recognised disability confident employers and support services to help them make the most of the opportunities available to them in their chosen sector.”
