Developing an Inclusive Digital Skills Training Toolkit for Persons with Disabilities

Digital skills training plays a crucial role in empowering persons with disabilities to participate fully in the digital world. However, there is a need for inclusive resources that cater to the diverse needs for persons with disabilities. It is against this backdrop that Health Focus has been contracted to develop a toolkit that will assist training organisations/programmes realise inclusive training journey, from design to implementation. The toolkit draws from experience and learnings of training interventions for youth with disabilities and private sector partnerships for employment promotion in South Africa. The toolkit aims to provide recommendations from the broader digital skills development landscape and inclusive policies for employment promotion for youth with disabilities. The toolkit will provide insights into key considerations for successful implementation of inclusive digital skills training for youth with disabilities as part of the National Digital and Future Skills Strategy.
