Disability-Smart Webinar: Learning & DevelopmentShare via facebook Share via twitter Share via linkedin Share via email
Workplace learning is crucial because it is a leveller. Whatever an employee’s background, whatever their role, they will all need to learn at work. The world of work is constantly changing, growing, and evolving, making the learning function of each organisation even more important for helping organisations and their staff to navigate change.
In order to remain competitive, businesses must keep their people up to date with new systems and processes so that nobody gets left behind – including employees with disabilities. A disability-smart organisation understands how disability affects each part of the organisation. They can anticipate the needs of disabled people and make adjustments where needed. This includes not only how employees carry out their day-to-day activities, but how they learn about their jobs and the tools, systems and principles needed in their roles.
Led by BDF Learning and Development Manager, Ruth Fisher, this webinar will help you to understand how to ensure that you are focusing on the right areas to support employees with disabilities in the learning context. We will look at how considering the needs of disabled people throughout the design and implementation of learning programmes ensures that you are providing effective solutions for disabled people whilst creating best practice approaches for your business. We will also provide practical insights for you to take away to use immediately in your business.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- Disability and how it may impact learners in the workplace
- Your organisation’s legal requirements to make adjustments for employees with disabilities,
- The differences between learning difficulties and learning disabilities
- Potential barriers in the context of e-learning, face-to-face training delivery, and the development of course materials,
- Disability-smart learning principles
- Where to go further support
The webinar will be 45 minutes in length with time for questions.
Who should attend:
- Learning & Development specialists
- Anyone with a remit to design and/or deliver training in their organisation
