We have several targeted projects designed to address known barriers to success experienced by specific groups of students. Initiatives, such as the Supported Induction Programme, are mentioned in our Access and Participation Plan and are examples of some of the ways we are addressing gaps in continuation, attainment and success.
What is the Supported Induction Programme?
As part of the programme, applicants who declare a disability will:
- Be invited to our Flying Start one-day events.
- Have access to a module in Moodle, which will host resources and provide signposting for disability related support.
- Have the option of attending an early-move in event on 10th Septmeber.
- Be able to opt in to a variety sessions and drop-ins run by the HE Disability Team throughout induction week.
Who would benefit from attending?
The Supported Induction Programme is an initiative designed to help students who declare a disability to transition into their studies at WUC. The events are designed to familiarise students with the spaces on campus and support with the extra administration often required for disabled students. Through the Moodle module, the team will monitor students' transition and offer support to students where needed.
When does it run?
The Supported Induction Programme begins in August, with the Flying start events and continues through into the first weeks of term.
How do you sign-up?
Students should declare their disability in their application to WUC. If you havenâ€™t declared in your application, you can declare directly to the HE Disability Team by emailing them via HEDisability@writtle.ac.uk
