Stirling Institute of Australia is committed to ensuring equity in education by helping students who have specific learning difficulties and/or disabilities gain their qualification. All students undertake a Pre-training review which allows us to assess their individual needs.
We respect and respond to those with learning difficulties, disabilities and/or impairments and will offer them the same rights and opportunities as other students who do not have additional needs. This will include the opportunity to perform and complete assessments by reasonable adjustments. This may include modifying the learning environment or making changes to the teaching methods.
Individualised learning plans for students with disabilities, learning difficulties and additional needs will begin from the Pre-training review. Strategies put in place to support students are regularly monitored during the student’s course of study.
