Training with disabilities & other needs
Disability or specific learning difficulty does not preclude application to study for qualifications in teaching . However, students who choose these courses are required to comply with the Fitness to Practise policies of the bodies which govern the respective professions (Department for Education). The Department for Education and Employment place a responsibility upon education and training providers to make sure that everyone who is registered as a Teacher is ‘physically and mentally fit’ to undertake the work they are training to do. Applicants are thus required to declare conditions which could be viewed as having a potential impact on their fitness to practice. Advice, guidance and support for applicants and students is available from the Education Department and also the Learning Support Team at Liverpool Hope University.
