Suffolk Growth and AccessAble Disability Essentials E-Learning

Suffolk Growth and disability organisation AccessAble have developed an E-learning programme that businesses can access for free.

Whether you run a business or just want to learn more about disability awareness, the training will give you the essential information that you need.

The training consists of 5 modules:

  • What is disability
  • Disability equality and the law
  • Types of impairments
  • Providing a good service
  • Language
