The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACEdefinition - from January 2016, Learning and Work Institute) launched an Employer Toolkit, which aims to support employers to develop a more inclusive apprenticeship offer for disabled people.
The Employer Toolkit was developed through consultation with some employers - including Barclays Bank, Tottenham Hotspur FC, The National Theatre, Novartis PLC, Leicester City Council and Luton and Dunstable Hospital - who have hired and supported disabled apprentices.
Commissioned by the Skills Funding Agency, the toolkit provides practical information, sources of support and inspirational case studies of employers who have benefited from hiring and supporting disabled apprentices.
The Employer Toolkit can be found at: http://www.employer-toolkit.org.uk/
