Disability Awareness is a very important subject but until now understanding it has not been easy to learn. We have teamed up with Enhance the UK, a disability charity to develop this educational course to improve disability awareness. Fifty percent of all proceeds from course sales go direct to Enhance the UK to further support their excellent work in promoting and training disability awareness.
The course challenges the attitudes, perceptions and expectations of both disabled people and society as a whole in relation to disability. The course is user led, being presented by people with disabilities.
With this training, we aim to remove the embarrassment of social interaction when working with disabled people by teaching you simple hints and tips in a fun interactive online training.
The training covers all areas of disability:
- Deaf awareness
- Visual impairments
- Physical impairments
- British Sign Language – BSL
- All round disability awareness
- Disability and Communication training
- The equality act
The course is a series of short videos followed by knowledge review questions between the videos and a short multiple choice test at the end. When you complete the course you can download and print your completion certificate, evidenced based learning statement and Certified CPD certificate. There is also a download area and you can have access to the course for 8 months even after you have passed the course making it a useful resource of information.
As the course is taught by people with disabilities, the information given is accurate and you will learn about the problems and solutions of the disabled. You will also lean about communicating with the disabled and how you can help them in the workplace and community. If you would like a face to face lesson at your workplace, contact us and Enhance the UK can provide this for you.
