Helping blind and partially sighted people into work orgines by Blind in Business

Blind in Business have been offering training courses for blind and visually impaired people for over 8 years.  Now we wish to help more people……

This parents workshop is your chance to learn more, from young, blind and visually impaired people who are working in modern careers.  You will have the opportunity to meet these people from a variety of backgrounds, who have been in mainstream education and special education throughout the UK.  These role models will share their views and opinions on their education, finding work, the technology they use, what support they have and what experiences they’ve had throughout their lives.

This short workshop will give you the opportunity to learn more about the interesting careers blind and visually impaired people are doing.  Often we have role models who work in the fields of management, accounting, marketing, computing programming, teaching, human resources.  The variety of jobs that people do is anything but driving a bus!

You are more than welcome to join this FREE parents workshop.  You can also learn more about the work that Blind in Business offers all over the UK, training with young school children, helping A-level students into work, working with undergraduates and graduates and also offering assistance to employers, bridging the gap between the people we help and those who offer them jobs.
