Disability Equality Training
Disability Equality Awareness training is now a vital part of life both in the voluntary and private sector. The Disability and Inclusion training team work towards re-educating and removing the fear and ignorance often felt when meeting people with disabilities.
Equality sees the person before the disability and is our starting point to avoiding discrimination.
Our disability equality training is delivered through challenging scenarios, revealing not only the letter of the law but the intentions and facts behind it. Each training session contains a mixture of awareness, equality, diversity, humour, role play and facts about issuers surrounding disabilities.
The training also incorporates how organisations can adapt their workplace, environment, curriculum, workshops/ sessions to become completely inclusive so all disabled people can be part of your organisation.
The training also gives practical solutions to problems encountered in the workplace as well as providing accreditation for participants attending the training.
The training is Suitable for:
• Play and Youth Service practitioners
• Health care practitioners
• School teachers, SENCO’s , teaching assistants
• Early Years practitioners
• Anyone involved with members of the public
• Front line customer facing or customer service staff
