Neurodiversity Aware

The Neurodiversity Aware® is a training & accreditation programme for those who want to gain a greater understanding of neuro-diverse ‘conditions’ including: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia/Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), Dyscalculia, Autism Spectrum Condition/Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASC/ASD), Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and ADHD from a workplace perspective and to gain a related, professional qualification.


Unfortunately, there are countless neurodiverse individuals still reluctant to speak out about challenges they face and therefore don’t seek help when they need it. This can impact negatively on their wellbeing and in the longer term this can result in negative mental health.
When an employee or trainee/apprentice is struggling with their work tasks, their performance can be affected which can result in formal performance management. If Line Managers and or/HR have the knowledge about neurodiverse conditions, small adjustments can be made to support the employee which results in better performance and less expenditure for the organisation in the time required for formal performance management. We’ve all read about employers who have found themselves in uncomfortable, legal situations due to lack of awareness of their legal obligations. and also, not being aware of the opportunities and value that comes with appropriately supporting a neurodiverse workforce.
This is where the Neurodiversity Aware® training comes into its own. This training and accreditation programme provides the last remaining jigsaw piece for employers in the puzzle that is ‘neurodiversity’. This training provides individuals and their employing organisations with an appreciation of the big ‘multi-dimensional’ picture of neurodiversity from a workplace perspective and equips them to bring about positive change to ensure the right processes are in place in the future.

Who is this training for?

The programme has been designed for Human Resources professionals, those working in Learning and Development, Union Representatives, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion teams, line managers and anyone else who is keen to embrace and support a neurodiverse workforce and ‘get it right first time…and every time’.

On successful submission of their individual assignment ‘learners’ will receive a certificate for their OCN qualification, a Neurodiversity Aware® certificate and have the Neurodiversity Aware® – Individual logo to display on their email signature.
We’re taking bookings now for the programme starting Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd March 2022.
