UK-WIDE – Disability Equality Trainers needed for new 12 month training programme!

Added: 12 June 2018 | Updated: 12 June 2018

The Work

Transport for All (TfA) and Inclusion London (IL) are working together on an exciting and ambitious 12 month programme of Disability Equality Training for Uber partner drivers across the UK.

This programme of training has been developed by TfA and IL to provide Uber partner-drivers with a good overview of core disability equality issues with the aim of enabling them to provide a better experience for Disabled customers of Uber.

We are therefore looking to recruit a UK network of 25 dynamic and experienced Disabled trainers to deliver our 12 month DET programme to Uber partner-drivers in the following cities:

London, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Merseyside, Leeds, Brighton, Portsmouth, Southampton, Cardiff, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Nottingham, Cambridge, Bristol, Belfast, Leicester, Stoke.

We expect to be delivering up to 34 training days per month across the 19 cities listed.

You will be delivering our tried and tested 3hr Disability Equality Training course and will deliver two 3 hr sessions per training day. The course covers core Disability Equality issues, including the social model of disability, language and meeting key access needs, as well as ‘top tips’ on how to provide excellent and inclusive customer service to Disabled Uber customers from across different impairment groups.


Who are we looking for?

We are looking to recruit trainers who can demonstrate the following skills, knowledge and experience:


The details

Our trainers will be paid a flat rate of £400 per day inclusive of all costs (including travel expenses). This daily fee will be to deliver 2 training sessions (am and pm), both lasting 3 hrs.

Our trainers will be supported by a Project Manager who will organise and co-ordinate monthly training schedules with Uber, and arrange all set up and training materials requirements.

Successful candidates will be given full induction training on the DET programme to be delivered.
