Neurodiversity Training for Employers

As one of four national Centres for Excellence in SEND, we are delighted to launch a brand-new workshop, delivered by our highly skilled and experienced neurodivergent employment specialists.

This workshop will give you an introduction to becoming an inclusive employer; providing you with the knowledge and skills required to support neurodiverse employees and customers.

This dynamic and innovative workshop will allow you to access untapped talent through an inclusive recruitment process. As a result, making reasonable adjustments in the workplace can lead to greater productivity, higher staff retention and increased income. 

Making reasonable adjustments in the workplace will lead to a more productive workforce, which will result in a higher retention of diverse employees.

For a small investment of only £99 per participant, you will benefit from the 1-day workshop, as well as a follow up consultation with our experienced team.

Working with neurodiverse employees can bring many benefits to your organisation. Listen to Nick’s story, below.

 

We also offer Conscious Inclusion Training, which focuses on exploring Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) from a conscious inclusion perspective, delivered by highly experienced and specialised staff. Find out more, here.

We found the Autism Awareness course invaluable. Even though our teams here are so varied in their knowledge of the challenges that Neurodiversity presents on a daily basis, we all found this very helpful.

It gave us an insight into the different approaches that may be needed when interacting with different people.

The workshop was massively useful - informative and full of eye opening facts. Having the data as well as the 'human experience' is really important for us and you gave us both.

I also really appreciated attending an in-person training.

The amount of knowledge shared and challenging the 'norm' was superb.

The training helped us review recruitment from top to bottom.

One Message, Different Voices

Take a look at this powerful film made by the staff of Weston College to show how important it is for everyone from different backgrounds to be included. The film shares heartfelt stories and interviews with a diverse group of staff, showing how accepting different identities and backgrounds can make a big difference. Its purpose is to encourage viewers to think about their own biases and work towards making our community more welcoming to all. We invite everyone, regardless of their background, to join us and be a part of our journey toward a more inclusive future.

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee's ability to succeed.
