Delivering careers advice to blind & partially sighted service users: a webinar for the Career Development Institute

We are excited to be working with the Careers Development Institute (CDI), to improve their members’ knowledge and awareness around supporting blind and partially sighted people accessing their advice services.

This May, they have asked us to deliver two webinar training sessions. These will explore how blind and partially sighted people can be supported to access and get the most out of careers advice. These sessions are part of an ongoing collaborative project which we hope will upskill their advisors in this area, build their confidence, and ensure blind and partially sighted people accessing their services receive a high-quality experience.

 

The introductory webinars will include topics such as:

  • An introduction to vision impairment in the context of delivering careers advice.
  • How advisors might need adjust how they work with individuals, to make sure their advice is accessible and inclusive.
  • Advice and feedback from blind and partially sighted people we have worked with, on their own experiences accessing careers advice, and what they feel makes the advice delivered effective and valuable for them.
  • Information on reasonable adjustments that can make different job and work experience opportunities accessible.
  • Other support that is available to help blind and partially sighted people get in to and stay in work

We will finish with questions from attendees, to help with any specific examples they may want to discuss.
