The RNIB has developed their Understanding Sight Loss for Employment professionals into an online training module. As many organisations are using the current pandemic as an opportunity to engage in professional development and training, I hope some of you might consider under taking the training. The training is completely free and I will also be sharing information on further support available to employment professionals.
The training is aimed at those working with job seekers and may become useful as the rates of sight loss are due to increase in the UK. The training will cover:
- RNIB – who we are and what we do
- Sight loss and employment statistics
- Common eye conditions and how they affect vision
- Barriers to employment for people with sight loss
- How you can support jobseekers with a visual impairment
If you or your organisation would like to do this training, please email email@example.com to arrange access.
If you have already attended the training face to face, you do not need to complete the online training. Please note, for DWP staff the training is already available on your internal training platform.
