The MDCS Skills Academy helps disabled learners progress from being trainees in the workplace to becoming fully-fledged employees. The workplace skills development program, consisting of eight modules, empowers learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values needed to operate confidently as junior managers, and to respond to the challenges of the economic environment and changing world of work.

Upon completion, learners are capable of a range of business and workplace related activities, from coordinating with others, to junior management functions, to research and understanding the impact of current affairs on a business sector, to managing time and processes, to motivation and inducting new team members.
