Our training programme, Skills to Support Your Dyslexia in the Workplace accredited by City&Guilds, teaches learners how to use Assistive Technology to enhance their performance of common office-based tasks such as time management, business reading, writing, and presenting.

The 100 hours of learning and assessment are carried out entirely online, meaning learners can study at their own pace when and where they want.

Young people aged 14-19 can benefit from our Skills Zone training programme from City&Guilds. The programme teaches the “soft” skills that young people might not necessarily have gained when at school.

These include:

  • Delivering Results
  • Communication
  • Innovation
  • Self-Development
  • Digital Skills
  • Enterprise
  • Workplace Literacy

All resources are hosted online in the Skills Zone learning hub which also tracks learner progress and development.

In addition, this programme can be combined with Skills to Support Your Dyslexia in the Workplace for a comprehensive employability-focused approach for young people with dyslexia.

Our SQA Customised Award – Assistive Technology and Business Skills for Dyslexia - offers individuals with dyslexia the chance to gain a recognised qualification, rated on the SCQF framework, while also developing valuable workplace skills and strategies.

The award focuses on how key Assistive Technology tools can help in the workplace by facilitating better literacy and organisational skills, including notetaking.

Please note: While this award can be studied online, assessment must be carried out in-person at Concept Northern's SQA-Approved Training Centre in East Kilbride.

We also offer a dyslexia-specific learning route incorporating the same ILM units but with extra materials designed especially for individuals with dyslexia. This means learners can benefit from developing Assistive Technology skills which can help them get the most from their ILM learning.
