ASpire – Excel’s Careers Advice for AS People Coming Soon!

Excel Academy is researching careers advising for people of all ages with Asperger syndrome.  The aim of this is to be able to provide a full careers and guidance support network to help people with AS across the UK.  This service is to be called ‘ASpire.’

AS people have great potential for employment and yet their options seem to be limited.  Only 15% of them are employed, most of them part-time, and as a result of this their potential remains untapped.

Julia began advising on careers issues with an AS person who initially came to her for driving lessons and didn’t know what to do with his life.  Now he has just signed up to do a Certificate in Management Studies at the University of Leicester.

Another person with AS is changing his career and becoming a driving instructor with help from Excel Academy.

People with AS can succeed against the odds – Julia is proof of this.  She is researching the careers advice service further and will  become a Member of the Institute of Career Guidance (MICG) shortly to be able to provide this service to AS people nationwide.
