SEND Support at Hull College: International Day of Persons with Disabilities


3:06 pm

Everyone at Hull College was proud to celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities today (Friday 3rd December).

First launched in 1992, the International Day of Disability is in its 29th year of celebration, marking nearly three decades of meaningful change for the disabled community.

An estimated 1 billion people, or 15% of the world’s population, live with disabilities. In the UK alone, there are more than 14 million disabled people and it is predicted that this figure will rise in the future as a result of people living longer.

Here at Hull College, we provide personalised support for students with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) in an inclusive and supportive learning environment.

We believe everybody should be allowed to learn and maximise their potential, regardless of their learning needs, by providing the appropriate facilities, services and resources to help learners succeed in their studies.

SEND Additional Support Coordinator, Gemma Walker said: “Our SEND Support Team are dedicated to providing personalised support to students with special educational needs and disabilities and raising awareness to ensure that any barriers to learning are removed.

"Alongside the support that learners can access at college, the team work closely with external agencies to effectively signpost learners, and their families, to additional support, advice and guidance.”
