TTA signs up to the DWP’s Employer Disability Confident Scheme

TTA is delighted to announce that it has signed up to the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) Disability Confident Scheme. TTA’s Level 1 membership of this ground-breaking scheme began on 9th January 2019 and will run for one year initially. The scheme, which was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives, is designed to aid people with disabilities and health conditions to get work in good jobs and achieve their full potential. Naturally as an employer who believes in, and is committed to, encouraging diversity, eliminating discrimination and guaranteeing safeguarding in both our role as an employer and as a provider of training services, we couldn’t be happier to lend our support to this wonderful scheme.

So, what is the Disability Confident Scheme?

Well, the Disability Confident scheme supports employers across all sectors to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to their workplaces: these abilities, coupled with their commitment and energy can help businesses flourish. The scheme is geared towards helping businesses gain the required skills and confidence to successfully recruit, retain and develop disabled people and those with health conditions, so that employers can help them reach their full potential.   

For our part, as a Disability Confident Committed Employer TTA has committed to:

• ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible

• communicating and actively promoting vacancies

• offering an interview to disabled people

• anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required

• supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work, and

• offering at least one activity that will make a difference for disabled people.

TTA looks forward to working with the DWP and other employers and businesses in the scheme. Hopefully by working together we can better help disabled people and those with health conditions reach their full potential.
