Disability Equality Training

Disability Equality Training aims to increase understanding and to effect change in the areas of disability and access, encouraging inclusivity and equality. Our client-base includes music venues, festivals, promoters, music organisations, Local Authority event teams and Outdoor Arts producers.

“The training we have received from Attitude is Everything has been of enormous value - increasing staff knowledge and awareness, as well as helping us to develop workable policies on access at KOKO.”

Mike Hamer, Operations Director, KOKO

Music is our specialism and passion. For the last 10 years we have focused exclusively on improving Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music. Our qualified trainers are all Deaf and disabled people who are passionate about live music and attend gigs regularly. They understand both sides of the issue - the barriers faced by Deaf and disabled customers who attend, perform and work at live music events; and the challenges faced by venues and festivals when improving access.

Every training session is bespoke, with content tailored to the nature of our clients’ business, and the knowledge level of those attending. Our training is both thought-provoking and engaging; we get our audience actively involved and use real-life case studies chosen for their relevance to the session.

Disability Equality Training Packages

We have developed a series of training modules specifically for the Live Music and Outdoor Arts sector. There are set module courses to introduce disability equality to front line staff or policymakers, and intermediate courses for those who have already made the first steps.

Set module templates are between 3 and 5 hours and are generally delivered to up to 15 participants. All existing courses can be adapted to your needs and are flexible in terms of length and size.

Our courses are bespoke and created in consultation with clients; we listen to what you want to get out of it and create a tailored package specifically to achieve your goals. Our staff will be more than happy to discuss researching and creating entirely new modules if we don’t already cover exactly what you think you’ll benefit from most.

We will also be hosting various regular open training sessions, including our Introductory and Advanced Disability Equality Training for individuals or groups. These open sessions will provide a cost effective alternative for organisations that don’t require our bespoke service and wish to only train a small number of staff.
