Dyslexia Week 2021 will be taking place from Monday 4th October – Sunday 10th October this year.
In order to coincide with national Dyslexia Week and as part of our continuous professional development activities here at Xact, our managers, teaching/assessing staff and office staff will all undertake introductory training sessions on Neurodiversity so that we can all understand the many challenges that this community face and the unseen struggles.
This year’s National Dyslexia Week is focusing specifically on Invisible Dyslexia, highlighting the importance of mental health, increase of visibility within underrepresented groups and the issue of dyslexia being overlooked within education and the workplace.
We feel that it is important for all our staff to have an understanding of Neurodiversity, the impact that Neurodiversity can have on individuals and the support we can provide in both learning and the workplace, in order to meet our core values and work towards achieving our vision of being the leading provider of specialised fire safety training and qualifications.
