We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and took part in the See My Skills: How to land your dream job! event on Saturday 26 March 2022, co-hosted by LOOK and Vision Foundation.
In recognition of School Diversity Week, we shine a light on how inclusive mainstream schools are for the VI community. LOOK mentors and mentees share their experiences of the education system, the support they received and where they feel schools fall short.
Transitions are always a key point in a VI child or young persons life. Having the right equipment in place and the skills to use them makes a huge difference. In this session we focus on best practice provision, when new assistive technology should be introduced and how we can support what happens at home.
Heading off to Uni? Worried about telling new people about your VI? LOOK mentor Abbie has been there, done that and offers advice on how you can do it, too.
