The college wishes to improve the participation of people with special needs to courses. Pearse College is taking part in a pilot programme for people with special needs in association with the National Training and Development Institute (NTDI). An NTDI consultant is available by appointment.
It is essential that special needs due to a disability should be indicated in the relevant section of the registration form and discussed with the course tutor who will arrange an appointment with the college Disability Officer as soon as possible. These needs will be treated confidentially and where possible the college will make appropriate arrangements.
On the basis of the documentation provided by the student and from other discussions with either the student, guidance, psychological or teaching staff, the Disability Officer will make appropriate recommendations.
