As an increasing number of members with mobility impairments seek employment, QAWC have identified the need to prepare employers, colleagues, managers and the workplace for the arrival of a person with a disability. QAWC offers Disability Sensitization Workshops to inform and educate the workforce about the correct etiquette for supporting individuals with disabilities.
Through this training we will challenge your perceptions of persons with disabilities, dispel stereotypes and myths, and assist in creating an environment where everyone is prepared and feels at ease about working with an individual with a disability.
QAWC’s Disability Sensitization Training is unique as we teach you how to support individuals with mobility, speech, visual and hearing impairments, as well as psychosocial disabilities and more. Additionally, the training is facilitated by a person with a disability, who is able to share personal experiences. The training runs between 3 to 3.5 hours.
QAWC has provided this training for a number of groups and companies including Mediclinic, Protea Hotels, Tsogo Sun, HG Travelling Services, Air Liquide, Egars and Matzikama Municipality.
