IASE Job Shadow Day 2016 - Nationwide 27th of April

Over 1000 jobseekers and employers set to team up for Job Shadow Day 2016.

The unemployment rate for people with Autism is 76% – 90%. This is mainly due to many Employers having a general lack of understanding and experience in relation to how to support individuals with an ASC within the workplace.

National Supported Employment Week

National Supported Employment Week, and the highlight of the week Job Shadow Day takes place each April to raise awareness about the skills and abilities of people with a disability throughout Ireland.

The IASE believes everyone has the right to work, express their ability and take part fully in Irish society.

Over one-third of people with a disability who are not at work would be interested in a job if the circumstances and right supports were in place. This figure is still higher (almost two-thirds) for young adults with disabilities.
