Student Service Advisors/Client Managers will advise prospective students and/or their employers on an appropriate qualification based upon their particular circumstances. The assessment requirements of the qualification and the planned programme of study will be outlined. It will be made clear at the outset if the student will not be able to meet all of the assessment criteria due to any disability, impairment or specific learning difficulty.
Once our advisors have considered what adjustments future or current students with disabilities or difficulties may need, then appropriate provision can be made. This may also include referral to our Inclusion Team who will provide bespoke support. The sooner this is completed the better, especially if any specialist equipment is needed. What is reasonable will depend on the individual circumstances, the impact of the disability, cost implications and the practicality and effectiveness of the adjustment.
We try to be as prepared as possible for all our learners’ needs, but everybody is unique and sometimes we might not be fully prepared and we’ll need to make every potential learner feel welcome while we think on our feet and work with them to try to find a solution.
