In the context of assessment, the Quality Code sets as a Guiding Principle a requirement that “assessment is inclusive and equitable”. This is designed to ensure that every student has “an equal opportunity to demonstrate their achievement through the assessment process, with no group or individual disadvantaged.” We have an inclusive learning approach towards teaching and assessment, and this approach enables us to ensure that no students (including those with a specific learning difficulty) are disadvantaged. However, our policies and procedures ensure that we are able to make provisions for students that may have any additional requirements. The Assessment team works closely with the Disability Office to put these provisions in place. We also offer students with additional academic support, through our Learning Enhancement provision.
This allows us to create an environment where students can successfully demonstrate their achievements and provide students with the support that they need to succeed in and benefit from higher education.
