Training Which We Provide For Employers To Enable Them To Provide Equal Employment Opportunities & Design A Code Of Practice:

  1. Disability Equality Awareness Training: One Day Workshop.
    We at D.C.S can provide two optional courses on disability awareness in the work place.

    • 3 Hour Workshop: For example, bank staff on how to identify and assist a person with a disability.
    • 6 Hour Workshop: For example, a hotel may require their staff to participate on the 6 hour training program. This training program would be carried out on site using the aid of video's, case studies, role-plays etc. At the end of this course the said staff would have acquired the knowledge and confidence to assist any disabled person who may enter the hotel.

  2. Disability Equality Awareness Training: Two Day Workshop.
    • 12 Hour Workshop: For example a retail outlet or a training organisation might want their staff to participate on this advanced training program which is a follow up course on the one day workshop. Each disability session is delivered by a person with a disability which gives participants a better knowledge of how to assist and work with that particular disability.

  3. Sighted Guide Training.
    This training is provided where visually impaired or blind people may be customers or employee's of an organisation.
