Disability Confident Workforces: Session Outline

AND’s vision is to create a disability confident Australia, and our training programs have been designed to achieve just this.

We have seen that by having the right behaviours, attitudes, systems and knowledge, an organisation can create an inclusive environment that successfully includes people with disability, as employees, customers and stakeholders.

Our training equips participants with an understanding of accessibility and inclusion in the workplace. The interactive delivery style provides skills and knowledge to confidently welcome and work alongside people with disability.

Session objectives

Building capacity to support and promote the inclusion of people with disability within your workforce will ensure that you can attract and retain from the entire talent pool and build a workforce that is representative of the broader community.

This training assists staff to identify ways to develop an inclusive and accessible environment for employees, customers and stakeholders. This will be done through discussion, group activities, scenarios and video.

By the completion of training, participants will:

• Understand the importance of disability confidence for individuals and the whole organisation

• Have greater awareness of what disability is in the Australian society

• Be confident in using the right language and doing the right things

• Understand the value of inclusive behaviours and environments
