Training

Access Centre NI runs an ICT training programme in partnership with Insight Accessibility and New Life Counselling. The ICT training is delivered from our Belfast offices

The project is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Department for the Economy (DfE).

We consider our training approach to be structured and compliant with a potential employer but with sensibility around disability. Our staff are qualified with up to 20 years’ experience in the field of disability.

Training is for people with disabilities who are unemployed. We specialise in:

  • sight loss
  • physical disability (wheelchair users)
  • stroke
  • MS
  • people with social anxiety and nervous conditions
  • diabetes
  • dyslexia

  • Dragon Naturally Speaking
  • MindGenius
