Disability Awareness & Inclusion Training is now live!

We are pleased to announce that our Disability Awareness & Inclusion Training is now live, just in time for National Inclusion Week

The aim of this course is to provide more in-depth knowledge about the equal opportunities those with disabilities should be given, how both visible and invisible disabilities might impact someone's working life, and what you can do to make sure that people with disabilities are given equal consideration and fair access to the same opportunities as people without disabilities. There are more than 14 million people with disabilities in the UK, which means it’s very likely that we all know someone with a disability. 

By the end of this training, users will:

  • Understand how visible and invisible disabilities can affect people in & out of work 
  • Understand how the law protects people with disabilities from discrimination 
  • Learn what support, practices, and policies should be in place in your workplace
  • Know how each employee can make sure people with disabilities are given equal consideration and fair access to the same opportunities as those without disabilities
  • The course also includes an insightful interview with one of our actors, Holly, who has a disability, about her past experiences 

This course can be completed in just 55 minutes and is Citation Approved.
