23 Jun Alternatives to the job interview
Fewer than 6% of people with a learning disability have a job. Government figures show that disability employment rates are going up but Mencap says that employment in this group is going down. Mencap's CEO Jan Tregelles and employee Vijay Patel, who has a learning disability, came in to tell us how things could be different.Patel loves his work and says it’s unfair that more people with learning disabilities aren’t given the chance to be employed. Some great insight and depth in this programme, it's well worth a listen.
