How our School creates an accessible curriculum and enabling environment.
Teachability refers to the process of creating an accessible curriculum and enabling environment for students with disabilities. The term 'disabilities' is used broadly and includes mobility and sensory impairments, specific learning difficulties, mental health problems, autism spectrum conditions and unseen or medical conditions.
The Teachability approach aims to anticipate student needs and to create programmes that are 'accessible by design' to all students. The issue of disability informs the work of the School in all its aspects: in approaches to teaching students, in the teaching content of a range of courses, and in academic research.
Further information about support for students with disabilities can be found on the Student Disability Service website:
