Why They Won
- Focused their entry on an initiative dedicated to provide internships specifically for autistic students. This hugely admirable initiative is tackling one, very difficult issue head-on and this has already inspired other employers to create a similar scheme
- The focus of skill development, learning, familiarity and overall considered support provided during the scheme is outstanding, and they’re already seeing one in four interns finding employment following the internship, far exceeding the national average of one in seven
