Lacking knowledge or confidence when supporting students with a non-visible disability? Then this is the course for you!
This AGCAS East Midlands Regional Training event will explore some of the issues facing students with a non-visible disability, and enable participants to share good practice and information resources.
The aim of this event is to increase participants’ confidence and knowledge when working with students with non-visible disabilities, and will cover the following –
- What is a “non-visible” disability?
- Positive self-marketing for students: role models, and examples of strengths and attributes of those with a non-visible disability.
- Signs and symptoms of some of the more common non-visible disabilities.
- Hints and tips for supporting students with a non-visible disability, including information resources.
There will be contributions from two university careers services (De Montfort University, Leicester and the London School of Economics) and a speaker with experience of overcoming a hidden disability to succeed in the workplace.
Some interactive group work will be included as well as the opportunity to share good practice and useful resources.
