Disability Policy Statement
Capital College UK is committed to a positive approach to people who have a disability/learning difficulty (eg. a physical disability, sensory impairment, medical condition, learning difficulty or mental health condition).
Capital College UK seeks to enable students with any such disability/learning difficulty successfully to pursue their studies in equality with all other students, through recognition of the additional support they may need domestically, for access to the curriculum and in assessment assignments.
Capital College UK seeks to enable staff with any such disability/learning difficulty successfully to pursue their work in equality with all other staff, through recognition of the additional support they may need to achieve this.
To this end Capital College UK will:
- fulfil its legal obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and any related or subsequent legislation.
- seek to identify and remove all unjustified direct, indirect and institutional discrimination against people with a disability/learning difficulty.
- pursue a consistent programme of development and improvement in facilities, in processes and in the skills, knowledge and understanding of staff to meet the needs of people with a disability/learning difficulty.
Capital College UK requires both staff and students to act in a non-discriminatory manner when dealing with people with a disability/learning difficulty and to support changes in institutional practice that deny access or limit equality for this group of people.
All staff have a contractual obligation to comply with this Policy Statement and any breach of this will be regarded as serious misconduct and will be dealt with accordingly.
