Mencap - The Right Place Training for Professionals

Work experience placements can be hugely valuable for young people with SEND, but it isn’t always easy to find the right placement or make it a success for the young person and the employer.

As part of The Right Place project, DfE has funded Mencap to develop a free, online learning resource for education providers. Based on best practice, four e-learning modules will help you to engage employers, allocate the right student to the right placement, and provide effective support to the young person and the employer. There are resources for you to download at the end of each sub-module.

Each module takes about 45 minutes to complete, and you can come back and complete them in stages to fit around your busy schedule.

The module can be accessed through this link -
