The NCTD (National Centre for Tactile Diagrams) is running this one-day courses in conjunction with the RNIB (Royal National Institute of the Blind) to provide information on resources and technology for those supporting visually impaired students.
This course has been specially designed to give support and advisory staff a hands-on knowledge of when and how to provide accessible materials, and of the range of access technology, products and services to support students in studying effectively.
The course will concentrate on issues commonly requested by staff such as: access technology including demonstrations; accessible materials including tactile graphics – when and how to use them; and general products and services for blind or partially sighted students.
