Reasonable Adjustments Policy
A reasonable adjustment is any action that helps to reduce the effect of a disability or difficulty that places the candidate at a substantial disadvantage through educational processes, including the assessment of knowledge.
Wine Educator seeks to secure equal opportunity to all candidates to follow the processes of education and examination in a way that puts them at no disadvantage, or advantage, over other candidates.
Reasonable adjustments will not give unfair advantage over candidates for whom reasonable adjustments are not being made, or affect the reliability and validity of the assessment outcomes as detailed in the applicable Specification.
Reasonable adjustments may involve:
- Changing standard assessment arrangements, for example allowing candidates extra time to complete the assessment activity
- Adapting assessment materials, such as providing materials in large text format;
- Providing access facilitators during assessment, such as a sign language interpreter or reader
- Re-organising the assessment room, such as removal of visual stimuli for an autistic candidate. For further information, please contact our service at firstname.lastname@example.org
