Training

A range of training courses for professionals, parents and carers

Our training explains practical ways to support disabled children and adults to take part in everyday life.

Understand disability better

Our courses will improve your knowledge and understanding of impairments, disability rights and how best to support disabled people and their families. You’ll come away from our training with practical tools, new ways to do things and new ways of thinking.

Better outcomes for disabled people

We base our training on the ideas behind government programmes such as Early Support. This involves professionals working with families for the best outcomes for disabled children and adults, and families shaping the services they use.

All our trainers have real-life experience of disability.

Continuing professional development

Our training courses are accredited and every hour of a Scope course counts as one continuing professional development point. 99% of attendees rate our training as good or excellent.

Following a recent review, Scope is assessing its delivery of Essential Disability Training. Scope exists to change society so that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. This means that we are always thinking about the services we offer and sometimes we have to make difficult decisions about what we do.

The delivery of Essential Disability Training has been part of Scope’s wider offer to disabled people, their families and practitioners for some time and the feedback received to date has been positive. However, we no longer believe that this is the right kind of service for Scope to offer as the service does not cover its costs each year and a number of other charities and Disabled People’s Organisations now offer a similar service.

Current commitments and future enquiries / bookings may be impacted when a final decision is made.
