Disability Discrimination Act
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.

BCoT is committed to ensuring that all students gain employability skills to enable them to enter graduate level jobs and pursue the careers of their choice.
Career planning opportunities provided include Tutorial and Careers' Adviser guidance in potential job opportunities and application processes including CV writing, mock interviews, and support from universities.
Work Experience and placements students on most part-time programmes are also employed in relevant industries. Students on some programmes undertake vacation employment or placements in industry. Students on Sport courses are involved in coaching in schools and youth organisations.
Being involved with volunteering is another way to improve employability skills, as well as enhancing CVs, achieving personal development, and making a difference within the local community.
Before we approve a course staff have to demonstrate that they will provide students with employability skills. Most of our lecturers have also worked in industry and are able to make sure studies prepare students for the world of work. Our vocational courses are accredited by the relevant professional bodies.
Support for Development of Employability within courses include: Workplace research projects using corporate documentation and statistics, Live design projects, Promotional skills are encouraged by entry into competitions organised by industry and exhibiting skills are developed for example through Creation of final collection leading to catwalk show and exhibiting at New Designers.
At BCoT, all students have the opportunity to improve their learning, personal and professional skills by following an individual learning plan.
