The Bath Employment Support School for Autism (BESSA) 2022 is a free two-day event for autistic students or graduates (with or without a diagnosis).

The Bath Employment Support School for Autism 2022 – corporate session, which will run alongside day one of BESSA, is for corporate representatives. You'll be able to discuss autism at work programmes and support with peers from other organisations before joining BESSA sessions.

It is open to all organisations interested in providing opportunities and support for young people with autism as they transition from education to work.

What is BESSA?

BESSA aims to help with the transition from university to a range of opportunities such as:

  • internships
  • placements
  • graduate employment

The event is organised by the Centre for Applied Autism Research (CAAR) at the University of Bath, and JP Morgan (JPM).
