Welcoming candidates with handicap
DataScientest is committed to welcoming disabled people without discrimination, and to guaranteeing equal rights and opportunities for disabled people, to access training and qualifications, but also to enable them to validate their career path.
Indeed, as soon as an application is made, a candidate with a disability is identified. During the interview with the recruitment officer, if a learner indicates that he or she has a disability, we adapt his or her educational background.
However, it may take time to adapt the course. It is therefore essential to begin the adaptation process as soon as the application is submitted in order to provide an individualized and adapted response. This implies, in particular, adapting the curriculum, methods and teaching tools by mobilizing a network of partners, which takes time. For information, a process of adapting the curriculum according to the disability can take between 1 month and 6 months depending on the curriculum.
As soon as a candidate with a disability confirms his or her registration, the disability advisor contacts the candidate in order to set up the adaptation procedure for the curriculum. The disability advisor is in charge of contacting the partners in order to do everything possible to adapt the curriculum to the candidate’s disability. Once the partners have been contacted and the adaptation of the curriculum has begun, the disability advisor will be the link between the educational teams and the disability partners. He will also be in charge of making regular points with the learner with a disability to ensure that the adaptation of the curriculum is efficient and that there are no notorious difficulties.
In addition, due to the totally online nature of our offer, learners who are unable to travel can follow the training in the same way as their colleagues. Deaf or hard of hearing people will also be able to follow the training without any problem thanks to the subtitles.
