Camden Autism Pathways to Employment

On this website, information about autism is in the Disability section in the way that it’s understood in the Social Model of Disability. The model states that people have impairments and long-term conditions.  However, the oppression, exclusion and discrimination people face is not an inevitable consequence of having their condition.   Instead, these people are ‘disabled’ because of the barriers in society that exclude and discriminate.

People have different preferences for how they like to describe themselves and their autism, and all autistic adults are welcome on the CAPE course.

CAMDEN AUTISM Pathways to Employment

Camden Council has launched an innovative 5-week programme exclusively for autistic residents aged 18 and above, designed in collaboration with Aspierations. 

We call the programme CAMDEN AUTISM Pathways to Employment or CAPE for short.

Programme aims

CAPE aims to transform the employment landscape for autistic individuals, offering them the tools, knowledge, and confidence they need to pursue their career goals with competence and determination.


CAPE offers a holistic approach to support, combining in-person and online options to cater to diverse needs.

It empowers participants with invaluable skills and knowledge. They'll receive hands-on guidance in creating professional CVs and cover letters, ensuring they can effectively showcase their qualifications and skills.

Programme dates

The first programme will take place on Monday 26 February 2024 and the following three Mondays (4th, 11th and 18th March) from 3pm to 4.30pm.  The autism-friendly mock job interviews and graduation will take place on Monday 25 March between 9am and 5pm.

The 5-week programme will be held in person and the participants have to attend all the sessions.
