Grade 2 Disability Awareness Course 

Ian Edwards is planning to run a Grade 2 Disability Awareness Course in Austria from 23 to 30 May 2020 (the late May Bank Holiday so only 4 days off work). The course is primarily for Grade 3 Guides (or equivalent).  

Accommodation will be at a hotel on half-board in double rooms, ski pass with free use of the bus to the slopes is included. It is "Summer skiing" so early start, ski each morning until the sun turns the snow to "porridge", then back to the hotel for afternoon practical sessions and mini lectures. Each day a different disability topic Sit Skiing, 3 and 4 Tracking, Visually impaired, Blind and Blind Guiding, Hearing Impaired, plus others.

The cost which includes getting there, either flying or in the van/minibus is approximately £1,000 dependent on numbers, as it includes a share of the cost of van hire and crossing for the equipment which the Training Team will bring out. It will include a Manual. There is no profit in this, the Training Team pay the same as everyone else. Anyone interested should contact Ian, or use the contact form to find out further details.
