Students With Learning Disabilities Policy

The following complaints procedure is designed for use by students registered on validated schemes of the School of Computing and Business Studies, in instances when it is not possible to invoke an existing School of Computing and Business Studies procedure. This procedure is intended to incorporate the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness and shall be conducted in reference to the following guidelines:

The School of Computing and Business Studies recognizes the problems likely to be encountered by such students and have policies and procedures in place to ensure that the students' assessments are fair and consistent and meet with the awarding body standards. The College's teaching and general staff have been made aware of problems students with learning disabilities may have, and have been advised to act accordingly. (Further details are outlined in SCBS Policies and Procedures, a copy of which can be obtained on request). 

The SCBS has policies on equal opportunities and this means that the College will ensure that students have an equal opportunity to access learning. This means the College won't treat anybody differently because of their Race; Gender; Disability; Sexuality; Age; Religion or Belief. 

Additional support is given to students with learning difficulties in English and Mathematics. Refer to the prospectus for more information.
