The States of Guernsey has worked with disability organisation AccessAble to produce online training about disability awareness.
The disability essentials course is a practical and engaging course which will give you the knowledge and skills to provide a great service to disabled people and their carers. It includes videos of the lived experience of those people with different disabilities.
There are five modules:
- What do we mean by Disability?
- Disability Equality and the Law
- Types of impairments
- Providing a great service for everyone
The whole course takes about 1 ½ hours, but modules can be done one at a time, depending on the time available.
To complete the free training, users will need to create a log in on the States of Guernsey website before having access to the modules.
