At Apprentify, we're committed to creating an inclusive learning environment for all of our apprentices. That's why we're excited to celebrate Neurodiversity Week 2023, a time when we can recognize and celebrate the unique strengths and perspectives of individuals with neurodiversity needs.
What is neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity is the recognition that everyone's brain works differently. This means that people may think, learn, and process information in different ways. Neurodiversity includes conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, and dyspraxia, among others.
Unfortunately, individuals with neurodiversity needs often face barriers to education and employment. They may struggle to learn in traditional classroom settings or be misunderstood in the workplace. However, with the right support and accommodations, individuals with neurodiversity needs can thrive in their chosen careers.
How Apprentify supports neurodiversity
At Apprentify, we offer a Cognaisst program that provides tailored support to apprentices with neurodiversity needs. Our program is designed to help individuals learn and progress in a way that works for them. We work closely with our apprentices to understand their unique strengths and challenges, and we adapt our teaching methods to meet their needs.
Our Cognaisst program includes the following features:
A dedicated learning coach:
Each apprentice is assigned a dedicated learning coach who works with them throughout their apprenticeship. The coach provides regular support and feedback, and they are available to answer any questions the apprentice may have.
Personalised learning plans:
We work with each apprentice to create a personalized learning plan that takes into account their strengths and challenges. This plan may include accommodations such as extra time on assessments, visual aids, or assistive technology.
We understand that everyone learns at their own pace. That's why we offer flexible learning options that allow apprentices to progress at a speed that works for them.
