Disabled participants - mechanisms

Definition of disability under the French law of 11 February 2005

Article 114 of French law no. 2005-102 on equal rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship for people with disabilities defines the concept of disability: "For the purpose of this law, a disability is any limitation of activity or restriction on participation in social life suffered by a person in his or her environment as a result of a substantial, lasting or permanent impairment of one or more physical, sensory, mental, cognitive or psychological functions, a multiple disability or a disabling health condition". 

Airbus Beyond strives to make its training courses accessible to all

Examples of adaptations

  • Each participant receives and leaves with the course material and the course practical workbook ;
  • Access to a lift ; 
  • Access to dedicated parking spaces; 
  • Possibility of using an audio and/or visual recorder; 
  • Notes can be taken using a computer or tablet;
  • Possibility of getting help from external organisations such as LSF interpreters, note-taking aids, etc.

We advise you to discuss this with our training coordinators as soon as you register.

We work in partnership with independent organisations specialised in disability adaptations to ensure that we meet your needs as best as we can.
