DISABILITY AWARENESS TRAINING
Does your team need help focusing on disabled clients / customers and their unique needs? We find many team members really want to help disabled people but are worried about how to approach someone and what to do in fear of offending them. Our training gives your team the confidence and tools they'll need to help whether it is face-to-face or on the phone.
EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY TRAINING
It is important that your customers and staff are treated equally and an inclusive environment is created. Equality and Diversity Training will help your teams understand how everybody should have an equal opportunity and are not treated differently or discriminated against because of their characteristics including age, race, gender, identity, class, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability or the passport they hold.
The Disability Confident Scheme from the UK Government aims to support employers like you to make the most of the talent disabled people can bring to your workplace.
PASSENGER ASSISTANCE TRAINING (PAT)
PAT training is becoming a legal requirement for all cab driver to be trained in. We have a wealth of experience to share that will help you deliver the best service for your passengers ...and often with very small changes.
