Disability Confident

Working with disabled customers and colleagues - Move beyond disability awareness to the point that you become disability confident

Would staff in your organisation know the right way to deal with a customer or colleague with a physical or visual impairment and be comfortable about doing so rather than feel awkward or embarrassed? This learning resource provides the practical steps you need to take in order to serve disabled customers, and to work with disabled colleagues and staff.
Developed in partnership with The Employers' Forum on Disability (EFD) this exclusive training solution from Skill Boosters, provides guidance on best practice in the workplace and emphasises the value of a diverse workforce.
