  • NIDMAR programme for Disability Management, Return to Work and Job Retention

    Created: 31/07/2023
    News/Events Category: Employability

    NIDMAR (National Institute of Disability Management and Research) suite of training modules prepares candidates to support those with disabilities into sustainable work, restoring and maintaining workers abilities, while reducing the cost of disability for the worker, employer, government and insurance carriers.

    The Scottish Government embarked on supporting the NIDMAR programme 5 years ago and 2023 is the last year of training and funding.

    Dr Norma Clark has been appointed to the Scottish Government to lead on the delivery of the 5 year NIDMAR training program, to meet the ministerial commitment to train 300 supported employment case managers.  Dr Clark is coordinating the delivery of the NIDMAR case management training, as part of the Opportunities Fife Partnership successfully supporting a range of supported employment case managers to achieve the Certified Disability Management Professional (CDMP ) registration.

    Places still remain open for this year's round of training.  Front-facing case managers that are currently delivering supported employment services across the broad employability pathway to individuals whose health (physical and/or mental) is impacting on their ability to stay in or to progress into employment are eligible for Scottish Government funded NIDMAR training.


    This training normally costs

    • £3000 (£300 per NIDMAR module) - trainees normally do around 8 – 10 modules;
    • £350 to sit the Certified Disability Management Professional (CDMP) exam, and;
    • £100 International Disability Management Standards Council (IDMSC) professional registration fee.

    Costs are funded by the Scottish Government program.

    If you wish to join this year's training cohort please see the information available in the downloads below:
