Permanent agencies usually work by receiving a fee from an employer for introducing you to them or for recruiting you. Your employer is covered by the Equality Act in the usual way.
Skill has a new project for 2011 in partnership with Remploy. Diversity in Apprenticeships is designed to provide disabled young people with immediate information and advice on joining apprenticeship programmes.
Remploy can give employers the guidance they need to remove barriers to apprenticeships and help them support their staff and make reasonable adjustments for people with a range of disabilities.
We can provide information and advice and advice and refer candidates to Remploy’s national network of offices and employer contacts.
Disabled young people who are interested in starting an apprenticeship (and key advisers who work with them) can call the Skill helpline for more information. Tel: 0800 328 5050. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
