Becoming an Inclusive Employer Workshop
Topics covered in our 1-day course and the flyer attached:
Understanding Neurodiverse Minds 
The concept of neurodiversity aims to reduce stigma around learning and thinking. It challenges misconceptions around learning difficulties. Neurodiversity considers the whole range of human minds and discourages viewing one style of brain functioning as right or normal.
Inclusive Recruitment and retainment of staff
Inclusive recruitment minimises barriers and presents your organisation as inclusive and welcoming, enabling you to attract anyone with the right skill set, regardless of difference. This session will focus on the touch points in the recruitment process that are barriers to inclusion and diversity.
Reasonable Adjustments and Ongoing Support 
Employers have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ in the workplace where a person would otherwise be put at a substantial disadvantage compared with their colleagues. By making reasonable adjustments (such as changes to working patterns, adaptations to premises or equipment and provision of support packages) will ensure workers are not disadvantaged when applying for and doing their jobs. This includes contract workers, trainees, apprentices and business partners.
Signposting and Q&A 
On completion of the course we encourage employers to sign up to the Disability Confident scheme and change behaviour and cultures in their own businesses. There will be an opportunity for Q&A where specialist staff can provide answers to further enhance your business. 
The training is accompanied with the offer of a free consultation of your business to support the design of bespoke training packages around inclusion and how to achieve the national level 2 disability confident scheme. Following this we can arrange for training to be carried out on a range of specialist areas including: Communication, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Physical disabilities, Language, Autism, Mental Health, British Sign Language and many, many more.
