Spotlight on the AHEAD Journal: NCBI's Bespoke Major Award (QQI Level 4) in Employment Skills for People with Visual Impairment or Blindness

Opportunities for employment for people with impaired vision are very limited, so this article introducing the new Award developed by NCBI is a major addition to the qualifications on offer.  The programme  provides a nationally recognised qualification, giving employers a realistic expectation about the skills and competence of potential employees.  Particular emphasis is given to the Orientation Mobility and Access module which can also be undertaken as a separate minor award. NMBI hopes to make significant progress towards decreasing unemployment rates of individuals who are blind or have low vision in Ireland.
