Staff with knowledge of the effects, characteristics and implications of dyslexia and disabilities are in a much better position to contribute to an inclusive workplace.
Since the introduction of the Equality Act 2010 institutions have a legal obligation to ensure their premises and services are accessible for everyone, including disabled employees or clients.
Our “Disability Awareness Training” is designed for any institutions working with people with disabilities whether they are clients or employees. The training helps attendees understand the needs of disabled people and how an organisation can help support them.
Concept Northern have vast experience in dealing with a wide variety of disabilities including complex disabilities such as physical or mobility disabilities.
Our training sessions begin with a “Discovery Session” which allows our trainers to understand an organisation’s requirements so we can tailor the training to suit. Optionally we can arrange a “Needs Assessment” which allows us to establish and implement strategies and procedures which will support individuals within your organisation and ensure you meet the standards laid out in the Equality Act 2010.
