|Free webinar – Tips and tools for supporting disabled people in training and work:
Date of webinar: 17 Oct 2019
Aimed at: HR Professionals, Careers Advisors, professionals who work with disabled students and young adults, diversity & Inclusion professionals, disabled jobseekers who are looking for advice around support in the workplace or in education
Workplace diversity has tangible and direct benefits, including making organisations more desirable places to work. Are you looking for ways to help support disabled people and people with additional needs in your workplace? Perhaps you need advice about how to help get on the employment ladder as a disabled person yourself, or you’re a careers advisor looking for guidance.
DR UK & Ability Net want to ensure disabled people are aware of all the tools and resources available to improve their experiences in education, the workplace, and when seeking employment. In this webinar we’ll highlight the benefits of employing a diverse and inclusive workforce, advice for helping disabled people find paid employment and apprenticeships, and how you can make adjustments to better support people with additional needs.
The webinar will last 1 hour and includes a question and answer session. Those who register for the webinar will receive a recording, even if unable to attend live. We use My Clear Text to provide live captions during the webinar.
