The Disability Discrimination Acts of 1995 and 2005 were widely acknowledged to be the pioneering pieces of legislation that affected the rights of people with disabilities in the UK.
Equality Matters Ltd and its subsidiary company DDA Training UK Ltd created a comprehensive e-learning course which not only discussed the legalities of the DDAs, but offered practical solutions to everyday actions that affected people with disabilities. This course is modular and includes how the Acts affected people both personally and as part of their larger workplace organisation; making information more easily accessible in the way that websites and information products are made; making services more easily available to disabled people by examining the barriers to delivery; discussing the differences between the medical and social models of disability; – all still very important.
Although the DDA’s have been repealed and replaced by the Equality Act, procedural issues around disability are still very relevant. The Equality Act has changed wording and standardised language, but many of the requirements of the DDAs are still valid today. This course provides valuable information that is still important and applicable although these laws have altered, and is ideal as a ‘taster’ for disability awareness training. Prior to the Equality Act this course was widely regarded as the most comprehensive disability awareness course available.
