Making sure disabled people are not discriminated again when offering training, development

To make sure that you are not excluding disabled people from training, development, promotion or transfer opportunities, you need to look at how you describe the role and the person you are looking for.

You must consider not only whether you are discriminating directly or indirectly because of a person’s disability, but also:

  • Whether you are treating them in a particular way which, because of something connected with their disability, puts them at a disadvantage and you cannot justify this way of doing what you are doing (‘discrimination arising from disability’).
  • Whether reasonable adjustments are required to enable a person to take up a training, development, promotion or transfer opportunity.
