Would you like to fine-tune your employment skills?
then we might have just the course for you.
As you may have read in one of our previous insights, we, as VIDA Training, along with Gary of Gary Eady Computer Training, have been commissioned by TAVIP (Technology Association of Visually Impaired People) to manage phase 2 of their Inclusive Employment Project; developing a training programme to support people with vision impairments into employment.
Following a successful start to this project, we are proud to announce that we will now, in addition to managing the project, be delivering a pilot training course for TAVIP.
This course will support 8 vision impaired participants over a 12 week period starting on the 4th May 2021.
The course will cover all aspects of employment from breaking down the barriers to preparing for interviews. We’ll also be exploring and sharing tips on how to be more efficient and productive in the work place when using mainstream software with your screen reader.
The pilot course will be delivered using Zoom and, due to it being held remotely, anyone from around the UK can apply.
If you are interested and want to know more or know of someone who you think might be interested, then please visit our Employment Services page where you can find out more information about the course and how to apply.
Equally, if you work somewhere that supports vision impaired people and would be happy to promote this course to them or via your social media channels, then please email us and we’ll happily send you over some promotional copy.
We’re always interested to know about other people’s experiences and thoughts. Please share these by commenting…

Our VIDA Insights...
Following our experiences from delivering our Vision Impairment Awareness training days over the past couple of years, we know that there’s loads more that we could talk about and examples we could have shared. Whilst these won’t be a substitute for our training, they will give you an insight (hence the name!) into our thoughts, observations and experiences from each of our perspectives - Dave’s living with sight loss and Vicky’s from being a sighted person and working alongside and supporting people who have sight loss.
