It is NEBOSH policy that all learners should be given access to fair and equal assessment. Our “Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments Policy” ensures that no learner is placed at an unfair disadvantage, or advantage, over others. In so doing, NEBOSH aims to comply both with legislation intended to prevent unfair discrimination and with the criteria laid down by the regulatory authorities.

Below are examples of arrangements available:

Access arrangements allow learners with special educational needs, disabilities and temporary injuries to access assessment. For example; by providing a reader, scribe or a word processor.

Reasonable Adjustment can be made where a candidate, who is disabled within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010, would be at a substantial disadvantage in comparison to someone who is not disabled. NEBOSH is required to take reasonable steps to overcome that disadvantage. For example a Braille paper which would be a reasonable adjustment for a visually impaired person who could read Braille.

If you would like to apply for access arrangements or reasonable adjustments, please contact your Learning Partner directly to discuss your requirements. Your Learning Partner will then complete an application on your behalf.

Confirmation of your request will be sent to you and your Learning Partner prior to your assessment. If the adjustments do not meet your needs, please contact your Learning Partner immediately to allow your application to be reviewed.
