Provider Access at Springfield School

We have close links with our local colleges, a number of post-school providers and local businesses.  Pop over to our Transitions Page for more information about what's our there for our young people after Springfield.
We're always looking for more businesses to support our young people.  This offer looks different for everyone.  It could be:
  • Face-to-face or virtual session with a whole class about your role/company
  • Hosting a regular work experience placement
  • Hosting a one-off work experience taster session
  • Spending time with a class to meet potential future employees (you could come for lunch one day!)
  • Putting school in touch with someone involved in recruitment from your business
  • Flying the neurodiversity flag in your workplace - the majority of businesses that give opportunities to our young people have a personal experience of someone with a learning difficulty or disability so let's spread the word about how fabulous our young people are and how much they have to offer a workplace
We're really excited to be working closely with the YMCA, Motherwell and some of our inspiring parents who are developing our experiences of the world of work.  We continue to work with the Safe Opportunities team, who source, set up, risk assess and monitor external work experience placements for students where appropriate.
Please contact Laura Armitage if you could offer anything to further enhance our curriculum offer to our students.  See below for our External Provider Statement:
