Front Line Professionals Ref: INK/004
In an effort to improve the quality of assistance afforded to persons with disability, the INK project also envisages training for front-liners in the disability field. This training is open to professionals and staff working directly with persons with disability who wish to enhance his/her skills and go through an up-skilling experience.

The training will involve a mix of informational sessions, group activity, as well as sharing of best practices. Front line individuals will learn about the importance of encouraging persons with disability to seek employment.
Discussions will include, but not limited to:
  • Disabilities, and how to reach out to persons with disabilities through the front-line profession in relation to employment
  • Barriers, inhibitions and motivations persons with disabilities face in seeking employment
  • Supported employment
  • What changes employment brings to persons with disability and their family
  • Real-life models used locally and abroad
The training will also serve a space for discussing any challenges encountered by individuals in the group and creating a support network.

The training is for the duration of 12 hours, and is free of charge. A certificate of attendance will be given to those attending the full 12 hours.
