Dyslexia Awareness Training

As a teacher, Buddy, or Career mentor you will likely encounter a learner with dyslexia. Here are some resources to help you learn more about dyslexia and how you can better support our learners.

Reasonable adjustments when teaching and mentoring

In the UK Dyslexia is classified as a disability under the Equality Act 2010. We have a duty to provide reasonable adjustments for our disabled learners. So they can participate fully in their education and our community.
