FPLD: When I Grow Up: facilitator’s handbook

This handbook is designed to help teachers raise the aspirations and employment prospects of young people with learning disabilities.

Across the UK, fewer than 5.8% of people with a learning disability have a job and many of those who are employed only work part time. Yet the vast majority of people tell us they want to work. This handbook was developed with schools and pupils and includes session plans and resources for 10 school workshops, along with some family workshops.
