Disability Discrimination

The college wishes to ensure that it complies with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA Part 5). BCoT is therefore committed to ensuring that people with disabilities, including those with learning difficulties, are treated fairly. All reasonable adjustments to provision will be made to ensure that students and other people with disabilities are not substantially disadvantaged. If you have a disability please ensure that we know what you need so that we can make all reasonable adjustments to help you succeed.

Students with Physical Disabilities

The college will make arrangements, wherever possible, to accommodate students' physical disabilities by moving classes to ground floor locations, and purchasing or hiring specialist equipment to support individual students' needs.

Students with a Visual Impairment

Adaptation of materials can be arranged. College information featured in the Basingstoke Gazette is included in 'Talking Newspapers for the Blind'.

Students with a Hearing Impairment

The reception desk has an induction loop. A minicom service is also available by calling 01256 841627.

Students with Dyslexia

Students with dyslexia who hold an education psychologist report can apply for extra exam time. Please consult your tutor.
