Following the summer success of five people with learning disabilities in North Devon, another six learners from across the south of the county have started working on their City & Guilds 7300 qualifications.
The nationally recognised and accredited ‘Introduction to Training Skills’ award is hopefully the first step in the learners aspirations to become professional trainers.
The project has been sponsored by Devon and Cornwall Police, Devon County Council and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. ARC is managing the project on behalf of the Coalition for Action on Learning Disability Hate Crime (CALDHC) which comprises self advocacy groups and hate crime projects from across the far South West.
The already successful learners who are now qualified are seeking training opportunities.
They have worked with a variety of people within different settings including schools, colleges, with adults with learning disabilities in day centres and residential homes, and have provided training to housing, health and social care staff, and those working in criminal justice agencies.
The aim is to share their inside knowledge to help you learn in a way that is fun, inclusive and cost-effective and can train and advise on the following:
- Hate Crime and Mate Crime
- How to keep safe in the community
- What it is like to have a learning disability
- Equality and Diversity
- Safeguarding Adults
- Modernising staff approaches (‘Carer to Enabler’)
- The Mental Capacity Act
- Citizenship and Inclusion
