I Work in Education

Students with disabilities now make up more than 5% of the student population in higher education and that figure is likely to be higher in the further education sector so it's safe to say that whether you work in the academic department, examinations office or disability service, you are encountering students with disabilities on a day to day basis.

All college staff are responsible for ensuring that their service, or in the case of academics their curriculum delivery, is accessible to all students, including students with disabilities.

This section provides information on supporting students with disabilities in third level education, from disability support services providing reasonable accommodations to academics looking to implement inclusive teaching and learning strategies and provide notes in accessible formats.
