On 25 March 2021, the PfA team delivered two sessions about supporting young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) into employment.

Supporting Self Employment - this session explored the ways in which self employment and small business ownership can be used to create employment opportunities for people with learning difficulties.

Supporting Innovation: Organisational Adaptation & Influence - in this session, there were presentations from two organisations that have offered routes into employment and how by doing so, there have been far reaching impacts elsewhere for other departments.
