Grace Eyre attended a careers event at Durrington High School supported by employers from all over the Worthing area. This week-long event was aimed at helping young people explore their future options and understand more about the world of work.

Grace Eyre staff arranged a recruitment activity with the young people asking them ‘what qualities do you think you would need to be a Support Worker to support adults with learning disabilities and autistic people?’

There was some great engagement from the kids who had lots of ideas. The most popular idea was ‘patience and kindness’ but also ‘respectful’ and ‘reliable’.

George Sharpe, Recruitment Lead said,

“We were really pleased to be invited to attend this event. It was interesting to hear the children’s responses and their enthusiasm at the idea of a role supporting adults with learning disabilities or autism.”

“Working with local schools and colleges on these events really helps us to highlight to the next generation what a Support Worker role in the Social Care Sector is all about, and what a rewarding and varied career it can be. It’s also great to know that we could help them with their future career paths.”
