Christine Werrell is the Disability and Dyslexia Service Manager at Cardiff University. The Service offers students a full range of support and includes the DSA Assessment Centre Cardiff.
Christine has worked in several areas of disabled student support since 1999, including study skills tuition, DSA needs assessments and disability advice. She was the Disability Co-ordinator for the University Wales College of Medicine, having responsibility for institutional policy and developments, before the College merged with Cardiff University. Working in a small specialist health focused HEI has given Christine an interest in the relationship between professional bodies, disability discrimination and education.
Christine believes in creating an inclusive environment in which disabled students feel supported to face the academic challenges of higher education and completed her MSc Equality and Diversity research project on the inclusive curriculum. Christine was Chair of Skill Wales and member of Skill Council from 2006 until its demise in 2011.
