Human-centred design to improve WIL for neurodivergent individuals

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This project focuses on improving the employment outcomes for neurodiverse students, specifically Autistic students and students with an ADD / ADHD diagnosis. These students have poor employment outcomes post-graduation despite having the same discipline-specific knowledge as neurotypical students. The gap is therefore likely to be in their ‘transferable skills’ that could be overcome with access to WIL. Our project proposes the co-design and development of resources for neurodiverse students and industry partners to improve access and engagement in WIL. Initially these resources will be developed for interns in STEM, but will be applicable to a range of disciplines.
