Disability and health awareness for employment services

Develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to help disabled people find sustainable employment

This course can enable your staff to respond appropriately to the disability and health-related needs of participants on your employment service programmes – helping to place people more effectively into suitable and sustainable employment. 

We’ll help your advisors to understand the participants’ potential employment needs, helping them become more effective in placing disabled participants in sustainable employment.

“Disabled people are still far less likely than the non-disabled to be in employment.” 53.7% vs 81.7% (Office for National Statistics quarterly summary, May 2020) 

What will your employment services team learn?

  • About disability, its legal definition and societal attitudes - as well as a range of different conditions 
  • A holistic view on disability, and what it means for the organisation 
  • Suggested practical solutions and adjustments that can be implemented in the workplace 

"The training was very informative and makes you think about the less-obvious support that can be easily adapted to meet the needs of individuals. It was very interactive, lots of sharing of opinions was allowed which made the information stick a lot more." Delegate from Caerphilly Council. 

Key topics

  • The definition of disability and its legal and social context
  • Introduction to a range of disabilities
  • Adaptations to the support offered on the employment programme
  • Workplace adjustments, equipment and support.

Full day vs half day 

The full day course sees topics covered in more depth, with more time allowed for group discussions and for delegates to share their experience and real-life examples. 

Additional activities include experiential learning (sensory impairments) condition research and a case study exercise to help embed learning further.  

The trainer can provide additional guidance and information by being able to interact with all groups during activities – and your employment services team will receive a printed workbook, which can be referred back to as needed.
