Here you will find our training and professional development opportunities for social care professionals wanting to be better able to support people with sight loss.
RNIB's award-winning UK Practice and Development Team (UKPDT) offers specialist training and consultancy to support professionals to understand living with sight loss and co morbid conditions - specifically learning disability, autism, dementia, and stroke - and the impact that this can have on everyday life.
UKPDT offers a range of training which will raise awareness of potential barriers to timely diagnosis and treatment, signs of sight loss and provide resources to support access to eye care services. Training will provide you with skills to implement practical strategies for independent daily living by making simple changes to communication, guiding and the environment.

We run visual awareness training that will help you understand the needs of blind and partially sighted people and improve the services you offer. The training can be delivered in workshop format (full or half day), available in-house or as an open training course at venues throughout the UK. This training can also be delivered through e-learning.
