To declare or not to declare, that is the question

This month we’ve been focusing our social media campaigns on careers advice for students and graduates with a disability, health problem or specific learning difficulty.

One of the key difficulties is considering if and when you should declare your disability, health problem or specific learning difficulty in the job application process.

Change100 offer some useful advice on this in their ‘This is Your Future’ guide. We’ve included some information from this below. Get your copy here.

Change100 offer a paid internship scheme for students and graduates with any disability or long-term health condition, such as:

• physical impairments

• sensory impairments

• mental health conditions

• learning disabilities or difficulties e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD

• other long-term health conditions e.g. diabetes, MS

Applications are currently closed but will open again in the next academic year for Summer 2019.
