The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) have launched an innovative new guidance kit to help disabled social work and teaching students to achieve their full potential. The guidance helps lecturers, tutors and others involved with students to provide vital learning support. The ‘Learning support for disabled social work and teaching students: a guide’ was developed in response to the then Disability Rights Commission recommendation in its Maintaining Standards: Promoting Equality report which asked that all regulatory bodies provide guidance on reasonable adjustments and consider what other guidance is required to encourage others, such as universities, to adopt an enabling approach to disabled people.
