Within the project “Your career is waiting, get ready!” coordinated by the Non-profit organization EPIC and implemented with the support of the Erasmus+ programme, an interesting training for employers –  “Disability Awareness training” is taking place in Slovakia, Czech republic, Italy and Belgium.

The training has been created by the parent organization EPIC Assist Australia and focuses on raising awareness about people with disabilities. It is designed mostly for employers and their employees who are open to the employment of disabled people without prejudice. The training also serves to get acquainted with various categories of disability as well as increase confidence in people with disabilities in the workplace. It gives interesting answers to the question  – why even a disabled employee can be seen as a real value, benefit and in many cases a profit for the employer.

The first online Disability Awareness training took place on Monday 25.05.2020 for LEON CONSULTING representatives. The presentation was successful, the participants learnt some important facts. The final discussion was also very enriching.

“Disability Awareness training” provided by the non-profit organization EPIC is free of charge and can be completed in the coming months in both English or Slovak language. At the end of the training, participants receive a “Handbook on Disability” full of important information and facts, as well as a “Certificate of completion” of this training.


Thank you, we´re looking forward to the further trainings to come!
