Disability Skills Support in South Africa

Disability skills support in South Africa is a limited resource. Action strives to be the difference and bridge the gap for unemployed disabled people through government subsidized training and support.

We offer free resources such as experienced training and accessibilty for students such as:

  • Specialized computer accessories
  • Voice recognition
  • Screen reading software

Specialised support is also funded and includes mentors and learnership programmes.

Disability skills support is a learnership programme that provides specialized services directly to qualified training providers. With extra support, we at Action can provide the support needed in training learners with disabilities.

Disability training is administered by the Department of Labour, small businesses and training providers such as Action 4 the blind and disabled children.

Services that we offer are individualized according to needs, abilities and career choices. Whatever your requirement as a business owner, we will train accordingly.

Action can arrange for you to access learnership programmes if you:

  • Have an identified disability
  • You undertake training subsidized by a relevant SETA
  • Are unemployed
  • Are not registered with another charity organization

The services offered by Action are funded by the community.

The most amazing thing about education now days is the way in which technology has bridged the gap for disabled students. Previously, students struggled with learning and were closed off from the rest of the world as there was no accessibility. At Action, we encourage advanced technology in the classroom.

We aim to minimize inadequate and unequal educational opportunities by introducing computer-based technology. There is a change in the world of disabled students and no more isolation and limited opportunities for disabled students. Computer software is designed to allow easy access to material and participation in training centers.

New technology allows students the opportunity to become succesful members of society.
