star this property answer text <p>Higher education (HE) providers are independent and autonomous bodies, and as such are responsible for fulfilling their duties under both acts. Recent changes to Disabled Students’ Allowances sought to encourage all HE providers to fulfil their responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010. However, it is for higher education institutions to ensure adherence. The Higher Education Funding Council for England recently published a review of the provision of support to disabled students, which contains examples of good practice from across the sector. It also contains recommendations that give clear indications of actions that can help HE providers improve their offer to disabled students.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality and Human Rights Commission provides technical guidance on the Equality Act, and the Office of the Independent Adjudicator outlines good practice guidance for universities to consider when supporting disabled students. The Equality Challenge Unit supports equality and diversity for staff and students in HE, and also publishes technical guidance on the Equality Act.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Apprenticeships provide employment as well as additional training for apprentices. The apprenticeship system draws on many of the same principles as the wider education sector in supporting those with disabilities to help them achieve their full potential. This includes recognising Education, Health and Care Plans in our funding and in the adjustment for English and maths requirements. We also provide extra payments to training providers where an apprentice requires further learning support. Access to Work funding is also available from the Department for Work and Pensions to support adjustments apprentices may need in the workplace.</p><p> </p><p>Apprentice employers and training providers are obliged under equalities law to make reasonable adjustments for apprentices with disabilities. With regards to the assessment of apprentices, the Education and Skills Funding Agency requires apprenticeship End-Point Assessment Organisations to ensure they have in place arrangements to ensure fair access through their policy of reasonable adjustments.</p>
