Teaching & Learning (FE Sector) (PDF)
This guide has been designed to assist teaching staff in further education and training to have a better understanding of the needs of students with disabilities. It describes ways of using principles of Universal Design in the design and delivery of courses so that all students have access to the same learning opportunities. Building accessibility and inclusive practices into the design and delivery of courses will benefit all students and will ensure that further education and training reflects the spirit and requirements of current legislation. Adopting a Universal Design approach will also help to ensure that the inclusion of students with disabilities is embedded into mainstream practice thus reducing the need for specialist supports to be put in place at a later stage.
