Disabled people are more than twice as likely to be unemployed as their non-disabled counterparts, and this represents a huge loss to the workplace.

Disabled customers and service users continue to face unhelpful or inappropriate behaviour, much of it due to uninformed attitudes and a lack of confidence. 

This course dispels some of the myths around employing disabled people and looks at how to provide appropriate support for staff and customers with disabilities.   

Employers often tend to see the disability before the person and make assumptions about their needs and capabilities – and this can mean that the skills and potential of disabled job applicants and staff are not being properly recognised. In this course, we take a humorous look at the world of work and recruitment from the perspective of disabled people through the experiences of a group of disabled professional comedians from the comedy collective Abnormally Funny People. Guided by founder member and leading disability trainer Simon Minty, the course provides personal insight and guidance on recruiting and employing disabled people and sets out how to provide reasonable adjustments and support in the workplace.
