The National Institute of Intellectual Disability Studies is the first one-stop training and development marketplace in Ireland delivered using proven Person Centred approaches. Our suite of Workforce Development Tools were developed alongside national and international experts including ex-HIQA inspector, TIZARD Centre UK, and North Dakota Centre for Persons with Disabilities.
Our tools are designed to support compliance with Irish legislation, Irish Continuing Professional Development requirements and HIQA regulations. Some of our programmes have also been accredited by BILD (British Institute of Intellectual Disabilities).
Our workforce tools are developed against a competency framework which is a blueprint for best practice in disability services.
Our bespoke, accredited programmes are designed to prepare and equip organisations and staff for these challenges.
Our online EHub provides over a 1100 self-paced, multi-media bite size training programmes set against our Competency Professional Development Framework, available here at Your Fingertips.Read more
