East Sussex Supported Employment Forum (SEF)
The East Sussex Supported Employment Forum (SEF) was set up six years ago by Little Gate Supported Employment.
We commission the forum to support more young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) into employment. The forum brings together local partners and organisations that can do this by developing supported employment pathways.
This includes local implementation of the national Internships Work project.
Members of the SEF work together to identify local gaps and priorities to create an action plan. The priorities include:
- shaping good quality routes and pathways that will support more young people and adults with SEND/learning disabilities/autistic people into paid employment
- identifying, developing, and promoting training and resources that schools, colleges, training providers and employers can access to make meaningful paid work a realistic outcome for all young people and adults with SEND/learning disabilities/autistic people
- champion better and more effective employer engagement across East Sussex
- sharing national and local intelligence and updates that will help shape and inform the quality and direction of supported employment pathways.
