On behalf of our members, we have submitted a detailed response to the BIS consultation on DSA changes before the September deadline date. We provided responses to the following questions:
Q1: Do you think a minimum level of reasonable adjustments for all HE providers could help ensure a consistent approach to making reasonable adjustments?
Q3: Do you have any examples of how it might prove difficult for an HE provider to make reasonable adjustments because of the nature of their student population (e.g. if the HE provider has a very large or small student cohort)? If you have, please explain why this could be difficult.
Q7: In NMH Band One categories a - e and g on pages 18-20 are there any circumstances where the primary responsibility for provision should not sit with the HE provider? If yes, please give full details and explain your reasoning.
Q10: Are there any circumstances where the primary responsibility for provision should not sit with the HE provider?
Q16: Do you agree that the primary source of hard copy materials should be through an institution’s library services to remove the need for individual printers, scanners and hard copy materials? If not, why?
Q23: Are there any safeguards for students that should be considered to ensure that they receive the support necessary?
We are especially grateful to Teresa Pedroso for leading on this.
