Disability and health awareness for managers

Build disability knowledge and confidence to attract and retain a diverse workforce 

Designed specifically for managers, this disability and health awareness training course provides a broad understanding of disability, its legal definition and how it has been treated by society – as well as a range of different conditions. 

Disabled people make great employees, bringing motivation, passion and the skills any business needs to succeed. Our course will suggest practical solutions and adjustments which can be implemented back in the workplace.

"A good mix of theory and practical and the right amount of interaction. The trainer encouraged open and honest conversation with references back to the real world. The course was fantastic." - Nisha, Nationwide  

Key topics  

  • The definition of disability, and its legal and social context   
  • Introduction to a range of disabilities – their signs and symptoms    
  • 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 delegates receive a printed workbook, which can be referred back to as needed.
