    Are you aware of any disabilities, medical, neurological or mental health conditions that may affect your ability to successfully undertake a placement?

    If yes, and if you have not already done so, please register with AccessAbility Services so they can prepare an Education Access Plan for you that will recommend reasonable adjustments to support your studies. This team will also work with you through the Professional Placements team in negotiating reasonable adjustments in the workplace if necessary.

It is in your interests to present an Education Access Plan to ensure that the provider is aware of the reasonable adjustments they can make to assist your participation in a placement.

    The terms of your placement can be altered or you can be withdrawn from a placement if the workplace is unable to make sufficient adjustment to meet your needs. You can have the terms of your placement altered or be withdrawn from a placement if the workplace is unable to meet expectations
