Dear Mr Slater,
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request received on 27th January
2017. You asked: “In its document “learning Journey Work Coach” at page 17
the DWP lists a course titled: Raising the Game on Disability – Operational
seminar JCP1709. The stated aim is: “To raise disability
awareness/confidence to deliver high quality services to disabled people,
dispelling misconceptions/assumptions around the disability agenda.”
RFI1 – Any delegate or facilitator notes used on this course.
RFI2 – What the DWP means by “disability agenda”. I assume that the DWP
holds a document that defines and describes the “disability agenda”.” DWP response
We have attached the facilitator notes, delegate hand-outs and other
materials that are used when delivering this learning module, as requested.
The reference to the disability agenda in the aims of the module refers to the
course content, which includes understanding the business case for the
employment of disabled people, an introduction to the Equality Act 2010, and
exploring what it means to break down societal and organisational barriers
that prevent inclusion for disabled people. These areas are not set out in any
single document, but DWP has drawn many of the issues together into the
Disability Confident scheme, and we are encouraging employers to sign up to
the scheme. Further details about Disability Confident can be found on
GOV.UK, by following this link: Gov.UK.
The government’s approach is also
set out in the recent green paper on work, health and disability, available on
GOV.UK via this link: Gov.uk.
If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the
reference number above.
