The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) have been inspired by the 'Disability Power 100' publication from the Shaw Trust and, wish to commission a publication featuring approximately 50 stories of learners with disabilities who are 'living their best lives' through their course of study; in their work; in their community, being politically active or generally doing something wonderful. We want to feature a broad range of learners who are 'making a difference'.
This publication aims to engage and inspire young people, parents, employers and staff in the FE sector, and to really challenge out-dated ideas of what young people with learning difficulties and disabilities can do and achieve. We want to shift the emphasis, so we see bright young people first; and disability second! The publication will show how by embracing inclusion we enable our young people to be, and lead, the change they want to see in the world.
The publication will also celebrate the great work that is done in the further education and training sector to support young people to achieve their life goals and follow their passions. While the focus of each learner profile is the young person, what they have achieved and what they stand for, we feel it is also important to acknowledge the organisation where they studied or trained. We want to hear of the positive experiences that young people with learning difficulties and disabilities have in further education and training and how the sector has been the springboard that had enabled our young people to flourish.
