NADP2022 Week 3 – sponsored by Clear Links Support Ltd

Supporting apprentices and others on remote placements

Supporting apprentices has proved to be of particular concern this year and our webinar will focus on this area but we aim to widen out this week to look at support for disabled students on placement, research and field trips and also their year abroad.

It is widely recognised that hands-on experience and structured workplace learning provides students with the opportunity to integrate practical experience with nationally recognised qualifications. Disabled students and those with certain health conditions or those who are neurodiverse may need certain support and/or assistive technology to enable them to make the most of their studies and training.

We hope to look at a variety of ways in which colleges and universities have supported disabled students when learning remotely. This should include:

  • What policies do universities have concerning placements?
  • What about study abroad?
  • What about field trips?
  • What about research work?
  • How do we ensure that remote online support is secure?
