Access to WorkAccess to work is a government initiative that helps you and your employer overcome the difficulties that your health or disability (including dyslexia and RSI) affects you in your workplace.

You can applying for Access to Work funding if you are:

arrowhead in a paid job
arrowhead unemployed and about to start a job
arrowhead unemployed and about to start a Work Trial

arrowhead unemployed and starting a new job
arrowhead self-employed
arrowhead working for an employer and have been in the job for less than six weeks

of costs up to £10,000

We strongly recommend that you talk to your trainer beforehand and ask about their experience and qualifications.

Things to check are:

arrowhead Overall experience of the trainer that you will receive on the day
arrowhead The software certifications of the person who will be training you.

Check they are:

If you have Dyslexia check that your trainer has a Dyslexia teaching qualification.
