Now in its 7th year, the experience provided on Job Shadow Day 2014 - 9th of April, has proven to be invaluable for the employers, workers and people with disabilities involved.

“Job Shadow participation has increased annually and is an excellent partnership between employers large and small, local supported employment services and IASE." - IASE Chairman Greg Barry. We would like to thank everyone involved throughout the country that contributed, though their tireless work and dedication, to the great success of Job Shadow Day 2014.
