The Training & Disability certification confirms the strong commitment of Excelia's Apprentice Training Centre, and indeed of the entire School, to further improve the accessibility of education and training for people with disabilities.
OUR APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING CENTRE (CFA) CERTIFIED AS "DISABILITY-FRIENDLY"!
Some deliberate and sign, Excelia signs and keeps on signing! Following on from the Regional Charter of Commitment signed in May 2020, obtaining the Training & Disability certification in June 2021 confirms the strong commitment of Excelia's Apprentice Training Centre, and indeed of the entire School, to further improve the accessibility of education and training for people with disabilities.
The signing of the New Aquitaine Regional Charter for Commitment for improving the accessibility to education and training for people with disabilities resulted in Excelia taking a closer look at its own performance. "Commitment to accessibility for all is in our DNA. The CFA signing up to this regional scheme is an additional vector of stimulation because it gives us legitimacy and resources through the support of the Centre Ressource Formation Handicap - CRFH (Disability Training Resource Centre)", emphasises Séverine Grangereau, Head of the CFA. This means logistical, technical and financial support, enabling us, for example, to call on the services of an ergonomics specialist to monitor a student who cannot sit still for very long, and to find suitable solutions at the CFA itself as well as within a company.
Focus is on accessibility and inclusion
The permanent focus is on accessibility and inclusion! The premises, the lighting, the slope of the access ramps, the training programmes in all their physical and cognitive aspects... becoming a disability-friendly school means complying with 12 essential points (themselves subdivided into numerous criteria). This is like an inventory, a "portfolio of evidence" of what has already been achieved or is currently being validated as part of a continuous improvement process that, thanks to the Training & Disability certification, demonstrates our commitment.
The first condition of the certification is the training of a Disability Coordinator, an internal point of contact for both the management and the teaching Faculty, to support the development of practices in terms of hosting people with disabilities and making the necessary alterations (contact for learners: Carole Peyre email@example.com).
