We partner with 2 specialist organisations, Genius Within and Support Connect. Apprentices have the option of which organisation they wish to work with.
- Genius Within specialise in supporting neurodiversity and offer remote access to counsellors who work on a 1-1 basis to provide support with mental health, learning needs or emotional needs.
- Support Connect provide help for any condition or challenge which makes learning difficult. This includes 1-to-1 support, mentoring, and technology such as computers with assistive software.
To work with either organisation, you will need to complete an online screener that will identify any potential challenges. You will then be contacted by an expert workplace psychologist.
To be referred to support connect, you will need to speak to your LPA who can arrange this for you. If you prefer to engage with Genius Within, then you can complete the initial screener via the button below.
The Screening Questionnaire takes about 15 minutes to answer. The questions focus on practical, work-related issues. For each issue, Genius Within provides you with top tips for working at your best at work or in training. Following an online assessment, any apprentice whose results indicates challenges is able to receive support from an expert workplace psychologist.
