We are also training partners with the North Dakota Centre for Persons with Disabilities Minot University.
We help commissioning organisations to improve competitiveness by providing improved staff access to relevant knowledge acquisition and skills development. In turn, this improves an organisation's ability to respond to competitive challenges faced by the Intellectual Disability sector in a proactive manner.
As HIQA requirements play a key part in the provision of care in the Intellectual Disability sector, our training and consultancy place an emphasis on competence development of direct support workers, front line managers and others involved in service delivery to ensure compliance with HIQA standards.
Martha McGinn Training & Consultancy believe that people with disabilities have the same rights as everyone in our society, and that they should be able to exercise their rights in full. Individuals working at every level of organisations across the sector can and should support the realisation of these rights for all service users.
Our expectations for service users are extremely high. To deliver on this, services can and should be delivered with both innovation and creativity. We take a head, hands, and heart view of working in the sector, where education and early intervention are the cornerstones of effective, efficient practices.
We believe in taking a proactive approach to strategic planning which delivers top class services to all people with disabilities now and in the future.
Our teaching approach is based on a holistic perspective of disability. We focus on independence, well-being and choice for service users.
The mission of the Martha McGinn Training & Consultancy is to provide flexible, accessible, lifelong learning opportunities at all grades of staff across the intellectual disability sector in Ireland.
We are motivated by a strong passion to create a positive impact on service users and learners alike.
We aim to foster attitudes and promote practices which ensure the rights of people with disabilities are prioritised. So that people living with disabilities have the opportunity to lead expansive, fulfilling lives.
