As well as our online series, Be Ready’s Disability and Employment course is also available as a half-day workshop delivered in a classroom (face to face). It has been designed for Owners and Managers to be more disability aware in the workplace, including how to recruit and retain inclusively to get the best talent.

As a funded service, the Be Ready Employer Hub is able to provide this online workshop series free of charge to any business or employer based in Devon.

The workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to Disability Awareness: we explore where some common views and misconceptions of disability originate (Models of Disability), introduce the definition of disability according to the Equality Act 2010 and provide a general awareness of disability discrimination in the workplace.
  • Reasonable Adjustments: what is meant by the term ‘reasonable adjustment’ and look what the different types of barriers exist in the workplace.
  • Inclusive Recruitment: the practical aspects of inclusive recruitment, focusing on job adverts, job descriptions and interviews.
  • Access to Work Grant: who can apply and how it can be used, with examples from individuals who have lived experience of using the grant.
  • Disability Confident Award: what the award scheme entails and how it can enhance a business reputation, plus how to progress to become a Disability Confident Leader.
  • Language and Communication: this section supports delegates to overcome language or communication barriers they may experience when working with disabled colleagues or customers, and how to initiate a more “comfortable” conversation.

Workshop Date and Time:

This face-to-face workshop will be delivered on Tuesday 10th May 2022, starting at 9:00 am (to 1:00 pm).
