UK First as Disability Training Website
A website that provides comprehensive one-to-one training for individuals with disabilities has been launched as the first of its kind in the UK and has been produced off the back on an extensive piece of EU-backed research.
Training provider e-Quality Learning's approach was developed following research carried out in partnership with the Centre for Design and Research at Northumbria University. Its assistive software training is designed to deliver one-to-one training for people with disabilities to help with challenges in their employment or education.
Newcastle-based e-Quality Learning started in late 2010 with two people and now has 15 employees with an ongoing recruitment drive also underway. Its one-to-one e-learning services are aimed at employers, government bodies, universities, colleges and schools that have employees or students with disabilities.
