Special Requirements

The Gold Standard is committed to ensuring equality of access to all our programmes, and will endeavour to overcome any barriers to achievement, whilst maintaining the required standards.

Our policy is to provide for people according to their needs.  Tutors will be supported to try to ensure the learner’s experience is a beneficial one, whatever their circumstances.

Each learner’s individual requirements will be taken into account at the initial meeting with their tutor, and no assumptions will be made about the potential effects of impairment.  Tutors will ask their learners what type of support (if any) might be of help, and will seek information from employers to identify any information that might help a person learn and achieve.

Any special requirements will be identified via the apprenticeship enrolment process, the initial assessment process, the induction, and numeracy / literacy assessments (if required).

The achievement of all learners will be monitored to ensure that there are no barriers to progress for any learner.

Is there anything else we could do to help you achieve? If you think there might be, then contact us on: 07989 355 252, email us: nick@thegoldstandard.org.uk or talk to your tutor when they visit.
