Meeting Your Needs

The Open University is committed to offering disabled students and anyone who has a health condition, mental health disability or a specific learning difficulty access to all our qualifications. In the Vocational Qualification Assessment Centre we will do all we can to provide you with services that meet their requirements however we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to provide all services requested. We will aim to give as much notice as we can of any limit on our services.

When you register for a vocational qualification, we will ask if you have a disability or additional requirement that might affect your progress. If you answer ‘yes’ we will contact you directly to discuss your requirements. If you have additional requirements and do not let us know, we may not be able to support you effectively.

We will treat all the information you give to us as confidential and will use it only to provide you with services as a learner.
