Free Disability Awareness Training

Published at 9:43 am Tue Oct 13th, 2020

Some excellent Disability awareness training available to you and your organisation. As it is #HateCrimeAwarenessWeek why not commit to learning more about disability discrimination.

The This-Ability team would like to offer you some FREE disability awareness training, delivered via zoom by our MOBY (Making Our Business Yours) and PADD (People’s Awareness of Disability Discrimination) young people’s volunteer team. You can find out more information about us here.

The session is delivered in two parts, on two separate days. Part 1 Disability in society, Part 2 Creative communication.

Please note that when you sign up, you are committing to both parts of the session.

This session is aimed primarily at employers to raise awareness around recruiting and maintaining a diverse and productive workforce. It is, however, a great introduction for anyone who works with disabled people and/or people with health conditions and works well as a refresher for those with more knowledge and experience. It will also give you an insight into how This-Ability and MOBY work with employers.

We try to make it interactive and fun. Here is what previous participants have said:

‘As well as learning about the topic, I also had fun and really enjoyed meeting and hearing from everyone on the PADD team. The personal touches really made me think about what we'd learnt long after the training was over.’

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the training and it will help me when I am looking for work experience/jobs for future participants. Many thanks for the opportunity to take part in these sessions. I have thoroughly enjoyed the two days we have been together.’

The sessions on offer are:

NOVEMBER 2020 – Part 1 Wed 25th Nov 10:30 – 12:00. Part 2, Fri 27th Nov 10:30 – 12:00
