Learning Disability Week

22 June, 2023

19th – 25th June is Learning Disability Week!

To mark this occasion we thought we would highlight some of the resources available to support apprentices.

Learners who are disabled, or have a disability, learning difference, or long term health condition may be able to access additional support in order to enable equitable access to education and employment in healthcare.

Health Education England and Diversity & Ability have collaborated to create a Toolkit for Health Professionals and learners. This Toolkit goes through the process of applying for and accessing this additional support, showing what to do and when.

You can access this Toolkit here.

Access the Empowerment Passport for Learners. The Empowerment Passport is a digital platform enabling individuals with long term health conditions or disabilities to think about and communicate their unique adjustment needs in Education, Employment or any transition setting (between education to employment, or one job to another). Please note that providers/employers that are interested would need to look at a corporate licence.

Visit our Disability at Work section, which has resources for employers on how to support their staff in the workplace.
