Virtual Disability and Equality Training Session
Bristol WORKS is running a WECIL Disability and Equality training session for 8 March 2021. We currently have a few available placements that are bookable for the virtual training session this coming month.
These are fully funded placements and are available as a support mechanism for those who are currently or will be offering careers experience of work opportunities to their provisions. This could also be a good opportunities for any employee to get further CPD and training done to provide a better service and support for those with SEND.
We have limited placements available so we must at this time limit placements per organisation. We are happy for colleagues to be added to a reserve list if more places do become available.
Further details about the training can be found below, if you’re interested please do get in touch. The deadline to apply by is set for 3 March 2021!
