Exam access arrangements

The new ‘Examination access’ resource hosted on VIEW’s website is designed to help SENCOs, specialist teachers of the sensory impaired and staff responsible for examinations in examination centres to identify and get approval for adjustments to access arrangements for candidates with accessibility needs resulting from sensory impairment.

The materials have been developed from the document ‘Ensuring equal access to public examinations for candidates with sensory impairment’ a NatSIP publication, which has been used as advice to those working with sensory impaired candidates since 2017.

The resource has been created by NatSIP (National Sensory Impairment Partnership in conjunction with BATOD (British Association of Teachers of the Deaf) and VIEW (Professional Association of Vision Impairment Education Workforce).
