Disability Equality Training
The Commission for the Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD) offers Disability Equality
The training mainly covers disability etiquette and the dos and don’ts when interacting with persons with disability, as well as the perceptions of disability (social and medical model) and a short overview of existing legislation.

Throughout 2019, the UNCRPD and DET Unit started the process of revising the content of Disability Equality Training (DET),in collaboration with the Department of Disability Studies at the University of Malta. It has also started working on a recorded lecture to provide Disability Equality Training to staff working at Mater Dei Hospital, which was finalised in the early months of 2020 and now forms part of the training delivered to staff working at MDH as part of an EU funded Project.
Diżabilità Astrofiżika, a clip produced as part of the Fi Kliemna project, was also produced in 2019, and now forms part of the content of Disability Equality training. This Unit has delivered Disability Equality Training (DETs) to various public and private entities, as well as educational institutions. A number of sessions were also delivered in Resource Centres and Day Centres of persons with disability to create more awareness of the Equal Opportunities Act. A full list of the DET sessions carried out in 2019 is available in the CRPD Annual Report (2019).
