Carrying out risk assessments with disabled students and applicants

Reasons for attending this programme:
We know we should carry out risk assessments with disabled students and applicants when health and safety issues are identified, but when should these be carried out? Who should do them? What template should we use? What pitfalls should we avoid? How should they be carried out? How do we assess the level of risk and what if we think the risk level is unacceptable but the parent doesn’t (or vice versa?)

What is this training about?
This practical and interactive session explains how risk assessments can be used to ensure that disabled learners and applicants have the same degree of dignity and choice as their peers, while at the same time reducing risk to an acceptable and manageable level. The session will give staff an understanding of how risk assessments should be completed and used when evaluating and managing health and safety issues with disabled students and applicants. The event will be of interest to health and safety officers, learning support staff and tutors in practical areas such as engineering, construction, catering and health and social care.

During this programme you learn:

  • the principles and processes of inclusive risk assessment
  • the five steps to effective risk assessment
  • how to resolve the potential conflicts between learner entitlement and organisational protection
  • the skills and confidence to carry out inclusive risk assessments with disabled learners
  • the key features of a robust risk assessment and understand how to complete a risk assessment template.


  • Staff are adept at working with learners and applicants with different impairments.
  • The support of disabled learners is fully integrated within safeguarding policy and practice.
  • Legal requirements are met, thereby avoiding litigation, court action, costly discrimination pay-outs or damage to reputation and staff morale.

Duration: 6 hours

  • The magic was in the group brought together by Kate Julie and Owen. You miss a great opportunity if you don’t enter this course. The most magic was the potatoes! Changing belief systems in a split second. Keep up the outstanding work Thank you
    Jos Frederiks NLP Trainer

  • This course has been worth every penny. Fast doesn’t mean lacking in quality. The sheer tonnage of information is astonishing. It’s so worth it. You will learn a lot even if you are a very experienced teacher and you will enjoy it
    Dr Sharon Ney

  • It doesn’t matter how experience you are, go for it. The training was the most magic. Teaching must go over to learning and we in school have to take responsibility for that. I will use this in my work as a consultant helping schools to improve. Many many thanks for a great course.
    Anita Svennson,Swedish Educational consultant

  • This course helped me widen my ideas about teaching and learning. It prompted lots of questions about how we should approach learning. Experiential learning is profound and fun. Thank you

  • I thought I knew how to design a course. After attending this training it’s totally changed my view about learning design. If you are a teacher this course is mandatory for your career.

  • I may wobble but I move forward with a giggle into all that is possible. The course has accelerated my own slow and steady learning into the amazing and continued possibility of learning
    Vicky Morgan,College lecturer

  • This was loads of fun and I loved it. Fun and interactive ways of learning and how to apply that to teaching. Some may think that its only for teachers but we are all teachers in different areas. This course totally surpassed my expectations and all my goals were achieved. Creative teaching makes you want to teach. I highly recommend it so that more good teachers equal more confident kids. Just do it!
