About the Learning Disability Employment Programme
Launched in 2015, the programme supports the development of local and national solutions to remove barriers and increase employment opportunities for people with a learning disability in the NHS. These webinars are for organisations who have already demonstrated their commitment to employing people with learning disabilities by making a pledge, or those who are considering signing up to the LDEP pledge scheme. Learn more about the Learning Disability Employment Programme and pledge scheme.
In addition to the webinars, NDTi and the National Autistic Society (NAS) are also offering pledged organisations tailored support with any issues or challenges they are facing, or specific information needed to progress. Please email Kathy.email@example.com in the first instance with a brief description of the help you’re looking for. This support is available on request up until the end of March 2019.
