Trinity Career Service in collaboration with Trinity Disability Service are delighted to offer the Trinity Disability Inclusion Pathway to students who want to develop the skills, experience, and confidence to enable them to pursue future personal and workplace opportunities.

This training scheme - or "Pathway" - is open to undergraduate students registered with the Trinity Disability Service. All eligible students who want to start or continue their personal development outside of the classroom are encouraged to apply, and activities on the Pathway are specifically tailored to prepare students with disabilities who have little or no experience (yet) of the workplace, societies, volunteering, Employability Awards, or similar challenging environments.

The Pathway includes facilitated workshops, group activities, and independent learning which can be completed around your College schedule, allowing you to grow your transferable skills, gain practical experience, learn how to identify what skills you already have, and be proactive in connecting with the resources available in Trinity.

The Pathway will run from October 2022 to February 2023 and there will be several key workshops taking place on specific dates throughout that period. The other Pathway activities can be completed at a time that works for you, with regular options for dates and in-person/online offered where possible. All students who participate will be able to benefit from the different skills development activities available, and students who complete a minimum number of activities will also receive a Pathway Certificate to demonstrate their achievement.

Interested in applying?

Your application will be reviewed by the Careers Service and Disability Service and we will be in touch by 25th October to let you know if you have a place.

There is a summary of the activities involved and the Award timeline below, participants will be given full information on how to complete each activity through the MyCareer app once they start on the Pathway. All in-person activities will take place on the main Trinity campus.

What is in involved in the Pathway?

The Trinity Disability Inclusion Pathway runs from 25th October to 20th February 2023. Participating students will use the Pathway portal on the MyCareer app to track and complete activities.

The Pathway is divided into three phases which is the recommended order to complete the activities, these phases are designed to build on earlier learning as you progress.You can choose what order you want to complete the Pathway in - some of the workshops will happen on specific dates and other activities you can complete at any time or by booking into a regular weekly appointment.

The main aim of the Pathway is for you to gain skills and experience from completing the activities themselves, so you are encouraged to take part in as many as possible during the Pathway timeline dependent on your availability. Each completed activity is worth a certain number of points on the pathway. Students who complete a minimum amount of activity points will be presented with a Trinity Disability Inclusion Pathway Certificate of Achievement at the end of the pathway - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. This certificate is endorsed by the Vice-Provost/Chief Academic Officer of the university and the Directors of the Careers Service and Disability Service. It can be added to your CV, LinkedIn profile, or portfolio for future employers. It can also be included in an application to the Trinity Employability Award which will put you on the shortlist for available places.
