STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

Wentworth Institute of Higher Education is committed to ensuring equal access to learning for all our students.

We provide an environment in which students with special needs are able to participate in campus activities fully and which ensure that their learning and development is enhanced and not hindered by their needs.

All student information is treated confidentially and held securely at our premises on Elizabeth street.

Students with special needs should contact the Disability Support Officer, Bella Carr who can facilitate not only any physical adjustments required on campus but also any reasonable adjustments to learning requirements and assessment. Please ensure that you provide the relevant medical or professional documentation at your first meeting.

Reasonable Adjustment

Students with special needs may request reasonable adjustment to an assessment task to accommodate their requirements. Adjustments to assessment must take into account the special characteristics of the student.

Any adjustments made must be ‘reasonable’ so that they do not impose an unjustifiable hardship upon WIN Higher Ed.

A request for reasonable adjustment is made by the student in conjunction with the Disability Support Officer who will liaise with the appropriate lecturer for the unit of study affected.

Making a reasonable adjustment will involve varying the procedures for conducting an assessment, for example:

  • allowing additional time for the completion of an assessment,
  • extending deadlines for an assessment,
  • varying question and response modalities for an assessment,
  • providing or allowing additional resources in examinations.
