Independent report

Inclusive teaching and learning in higher education

Disabled Student Sector Leadership Group report on how HE providers can ensure that they are equipped to support disabled students.



The report encourages higher education providers (HEPs) to look at how they can support and offer the best environment for disabled students.

It considers the requirement to provide ‘reasonable adjustments’ under the Equality Act 2010, and suggests actions to mitigate risks associated with that.

It will be of interest to:

  • vice chancellors
  • principals
  • senior HEP managers
  • boards of governors
  • senior officers in HEPs responsible for compliance with the equality duty

It has been produced by the Disabled Student Sector Leadership Group, a sector-led group, chaired by Professor Geoff Layer, Vice Chancellor of the University of Wolverhampton.
