Universities, colleges and schools have a legal responsibility for making reasonable adjustments to ensure disabled students aren't unfairly disadvantaged or excluded.

Our Implementing Reasonable Adjustments for Students online training course has been specifically designed for staff working in education. It provides them with a practical understanding of what the law means when it talks about "disability" and "reasonable adjustments". And it gives everyone clear guidance on how to identify and implement reasonable adjustments effectively. By deploying the course, you’ll help to ensure you meet your legal obligations and treat disabled students fairly.

We were seeking an efficient and cost-effective method of raising awareness and understanding for academic and professional service staff. The module delivers a platform for staff to reflect on, and learn about their responsibilities in an accessible and engaging way. I am happy to recommend it to other HEIs.
