Scope Education programs
This is a progressive, interactive program offering real value to organisations. It educates your staff to see the person, not the disability.
Each session is co-facilitated by a person with a disability and there is the opportunity to tailor the subject matter to suit your organisation’s goals.
We offer a comprehensive learning experience for employees, including multimedia presentations, group discussions and practical activities. We provide resources and information as part of the training.
