Dyslexia: Training for Employers

One-day training event to help employers ensure that they address the needs of dyslexic people in their organisations

‘Dyslexia affects 1 in 10 of the population and the TUC briefing "Dyslexia in the workplace – a guide for unions" (Hagan, 2004) recently estimated that up to 2.5 million workers in the UK are affected by dyslexia.

 

The Disability Discrimination Act (1995) now requires all employers to take account of and address the needs of dyslexic people in their workforce and so NIACE is offering a one-day training event to help employers ensure that they address the needs of dyslexic people in their organisations.

The aim of the training is to provide a beginners guide for employers to help them become aware of dyslexia and how it may affect their workforce. The training will also help employers to address the needs of dyslexic people by making them aware of the "reasonable adjustments" they may need to make, particularly in relation to workplace training, as well as indicating what benefits dyslexic people may bring to the workplace.’

 

Tuesday 28th February 2006, Renaissance House, NIACE, Leicester
