CHANGE100

The Problem

An employment landscape that prevents disabled people from achieving their potential.

The Response

An national internship programme for students and graduates with a disability or long term health condition.



The Project

Change100 is a summer internship programme designed to bring together leading employers with talented students and graduates with disabilities and long term health conditions.

Launched in 2013 as a partnership between Koreo and Leonard Cheshire Disability, its ambition is to change the employment landscape for disabled students and graduates, the programme aims to remove barriers experienced by disabled people in the workplace, to allow them to achieve their potential.

The programme brings together a network of prestigious organisations to offer paid, 3-month summer internship opportunities across the private, public and non-profit sectors. Participating employers include: the BBC, BBSRC, Barclays, Centrica, the Department of Health, the Department for International Development, Experian, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Interserve, Lloyds Banking Group, SABMiller, Taylor Wimpey, Thomson Reuters.

 

Change100 has grown each year, swiftly becoming a national programme that delivers impressive results for interns and employers.



Starting in June every year, successful candidates spend three months in a paid internship while taking part in a development programme, coming together with other interns to work on peer coaching, skills workshops and networking events.

The aim is to give them experience of working for great employers and helping them develop essential skills, all while building confidence in managing and disclosing their disability in the workplace.

 



Change100 has grown each year, swiftly becoming a national programme that delivers impressive results for interns and employers.  All 2014 Change100 students seeking work had found a job within a month of completing their placement, and ___.
