Training & Development
Our services extend beyond hardware and software. We offer training to businesses to enhance understanding and development.
Whether your staff require support or you would like to enhance your inclusive company workplace policies, our experienced trainers can offer tailored solutions.
Assistive Technology Training
Our highly experienced trainers take time to understand an individual’s needs and what areas they have difficulties with. Each training session is then tailored to suit. This individualised training routine ensures the learner becomes fully equipped to use your technology to the full.
Everyone who receives Assistive Technology training also receives a free account to our e-learning site. This has many courses relating to assistive technology and is an excellent backup resource to have available.
Where possible, we try to use actual tasks during each training session so employees know how to use their technology in everyday life. For example, during training we may use a current work task to show how using the new technology can make it easier to accomplish.
Each year our trainers are re-trained in new training techniques, re-trained by the software developers and keep up to date with accredited training by the British Dyslexia Association, and the Institute of I.T. Training among others.
