Our Disability Confidence Survey shows that even when organisations feel positive about welcoming people with disability they often don’t know what to do. And, for a number of years, disability discrimination complaints have been the largest proportion of complaints received by the Australian Human Rights Commission.
This lack of knowledge and understanding can be overcome by accessing training and information to ensure people feel confident around disability.
The Australian Network on Disability has a long track record of providing specialist training to businesses and organisations.
Our courses will help you gain new skills and knowledge to confidently engage with people with disability as jobseekers, employees, customers, and stakeholders.
Training sessions will help you:
- Understand the relevance of people with disability to your organisation.
- Know about legal obligations and how to make adjustments.
- Know how to provide barrier free access to maximise opportunity and minimise the risk of complaints.
- Use appropriate language and terminology.
- Know where to find additional information.
You will leave the session knowing how to apply your knowledge, increasing your disability competence and confidence.
In addition to our training sessions we can also present information sessions on a broad range of topics.
Our information sessions provide you with an overview of a specific area of interest and topics including:
- What is a disability?
- Reasonable adjustments
- The business case for employing people with disability
- Ageing and disability
- Invisible disabilities
